•This full-bodied rum is matured in a wooden oak cask for four years. •Our Rum is made from Sugarcane and its byproducts, such as molasses, honey, and sugarcane juice.
How to Make?
•Our rum goes through a process of fermentation, distillation, and aging. However, some rum goes through a double distillation process, whereas ours is aged in wooden barrels to increase its characteristic flavor. Our rum can be considered midway between light rum and the darker variety. •In moderate amounts, both rum and whiskey can help reduce anxiety, warm and calm the body and help boost the immune system to fight the common cold. •Drink Rum
Picking our flavors
Our spiced rum has a good amount of vanilla as a taste component. Warm fall spices such as cinnamon, star anise, cloves and allspice. Citrus is always used with ginger, nutmeg and peppercorns adds great flavor. You can even take the spice name literally we add a touch of jalapeno peppers for an extra spicy kick!
We use fresh ingredients
Use the freshest ingredients possible when infusing your rum. Fresh vanilla beans, allspice berries, freshly grated nutmeg, cinnamon sticks, and fresh citrus peel have the best and the most flavor. Refrain from using artificial vanilla flavoring or already ground spices in the rum which can create an artificial taste or even too strong of a taste because you won’t be able to strain the ingredients out.
Time to infuse
Our rum is spiced infused from anywhere from 24 hours to one month depending on how flavorful we want our rum. Keep in mind it will keep for years, just like regular rum and the taste will only improve with age.
The 71st Regiment was a storied group of volunteers from New York City. They distinguished themselves in many battles, including Gettysburg in the Civil War and the Battle of San Juan Hill in the Spanish American War. Upon return from Cuba, the 71st Regiment bivouacked in Montauk in 1898.
Our Gin is named in their honor, and our Gin has even deeper NY roots. We use seventeen botanicals to craft our Gin, all of them sourced in NY state.
Gin is a spirit defined by, and famous for, its botanicals. To be classified as gin, it must have some level of juniper, which is where the pine taste comes from, but other than that, gin distillers are free to choose their botanicals at will.
Of course Juniper and about Juniper;
Juniper is to gin what hops are to IPAs: It’s not gin without it. The word gin is derived from juniper, whether the French genièvre or the Dutch jenever.
Taste-wise, it’s dominantly pine-flavored and is responsible for the Christmas tree notes most commonly associated with gin.
Some of our other favorite botanic:
Coriander, Pomelo, Grains of Paradise, Hawthorn Berries, Cubeb, Orris Root, Fennel Seed, Lavandin, Cucumber, Bayberry Bark, Chamomile, Green Peppercorn, Cacao Nibs, Honeysuckle, Birch Bark, Rose Petal
The favor that results is truly unique and separates 71st Regiment Gin from our competitors.
There is nothing like it!
