The cane plant, Rum´s primary indredient, is the natural source of its flavour. Thus the land on which it grows & its microclimate determines its character. Therefore we choose to explore the terroirs of Grenada - Captured here as fresh, vibrant spirit before cask ageing.
Ascending into the mountains of St. Andrew, on the island’s north-eastern coast, nestles Dunfermline – once a venerable distillery lost to Hurricane Ivan, where for centuries its clay loam has been conducive to cane cultivation. For this rum we harvested the sucrose-rich variety we call Lacalome Red from “Skean’s Field”, which stands on the terroir known as Mango lane.
Today four terroirs spread the 26.22 acres of farmland with four varieties of cane. But Dunfermline was acquired in 1953 by father and son Ferdinand Henry and Dennis Henry. At the time, the Estate was 992 acres of land with diverse crops, the main ones being Coconut, Cocoa, Bananas, Limes and Nutmeg for local sale and international export. In the 1970s and 1980s, the estate thrived, employing up to 150 people.
We believe in a novel approach to create the most sophisticated rum. Our answer lies with the cane plant grown on the caribbean island of Grenada. It is on our windward island farm that terroir - that beguiling interaction of soil, microclimate & place - Influences growth, life, & is thus the very birth of our natural flavour.
The terroir of Grenada stand on dormant volcanos, in the face of salt-laden, atlantic trade winds, or nestled in fertile river basins. Each one yields up different flavours, individual characters - if one chooses to search for them.
The modern marvel that is the Renegade Rum Distillery was cinceived precisely with this purpose in mind: To mill & distill fresh cane harvested for ultimate provenance - Farm by farm, terroir by terroir, field by field.
Purity of flavour, intensity of definition an artisanal belief, rejecting accepted industry processes & additives, to reveal the true essence of place.
This is for the curious of mind, the quizzical of spirit, to explore with us the boundaries of real rum, to find our answer to the "What if?"
One place, One Farm, At a time.
