The inspiration for this was the sweet coconut scent of gorse flowers in the spring sunshine, reminding us how well coconut and rum go together! The gorse flowers have been infused in the rum with some spices including black pepper and cinnamon and left to work their magic. Strained and bottled it has picked up a wonderful colour from the gorse and a deeply complex flavour.
The nose is rich, peppery, grassy and flowery with delicate spice notes. The taste is powerful, full of dry spice notes, hay, oak and pepper but overlaid with a powerful aromatic sweetness from the gorse. It really does taste unique.
We think it needs a slightly sweet partner and tend to serve it as a long drink served over ice with a large wedge of pink grapefruit and topped up with pink lemonade. If you prefer your tipple less sweet a light tonic water really brings this to life.
