Fair, a specialist in Fairtrade spirits and liqueurs, is building on the success of its rum with a series of limited releases, starting with a 10-year-old from Belize.
Only 1,500 bottles of the 10-year-old 40% ABV Fair Rum have been released, with a small allocation in the UK. It is a single-cask rum, aged in American oak barrels, making it smooth and dry on the palate with rich notes of cloves and spicy complexity.
It is set to be followed in September by an 11-year-old overproof Fairtrade rum at 58% ABV, with more expressions planned in the future.
The 10-year-old Belize rum can be found in London bars and restaurants such as Milk & Honey, The Rum Kitchen and Basement Sate and is available from Coe Vintners and Speciality Drinks. It is best enjoyed neat or in an Old Fashioned.
The core Fair Rum, aged for five years in American oak barrels, is made with Fairtrade-certified sugar cane from Belize, grown using organic and sustainable farming methods.
The rum is part of an eclectic portfolio of ethically produced spirits and liqueurs made with Fairtrade ingredients which also comprises Fair Quinoa Vodka, Fair Juniper gin, Fair Café coffee liqueur and Fair Goji liqueur.
