Langs Pineapple Rum: A Tropical Escape in Every Sip 

A taste of sunshine bottled - Langs Pineapple Rum is a vibrant expression of the Caribbean, offering a delightful fusion of juicy pineapple flavours with a smooth Jamaican rum base. This rum, recently awarded a Gold at the Rum Masters 2022, is perfect for those seeking a taste of the tropics or a flavorful base for tropical cocktails.

A Heritage Steeped in Tradition

Langs rum has a rich history dating back to the 1860s, when the Lang Brothers in Glasgow first created their signature banana rum. Today, Ian Macleod Distillers have revived this legacy, staying true to the original spirit of crafting delicious flavoured rums. Langs Pineapple Rum stays true to this heritage, using a blend of Jamaican molasses-rich pot and column still rums. Some of these rums are unaged, while others are matured in ex-bourbon casks, adding a touch of complexity to the final product.

Unpacking the Flavour Profile

Nose:  The moment you raise the glass to your nose, a wave of tropical sunshine hits you. The dominant aroma is, of course, ripe pineapple, but there's more to the story. Hints of coconut water and lime zest add a touch of complexity, while a subtle caramel sweetness lingers in the background. Some reviewers also detect a hint of passion fruit and a touch of earthy "funk," a characteristic note found in some Jamaican rums.

Palate: The initial sip delivers an explosion of juicy pineapple flavours, but it's not one-dimensional. The sweetness is balanced by a refreshing citrus twist of lemon zest, with hints of strawberry and passion fruit adding further intrigue. The rum base provides a smooth and warming foundation, with whispers of vanilla and oak peeking through from the ex-bourbon cask maturation. The finish is clean and lingers pleasantly, leaving you with a taste of the tropics.

Serving Suggestions

Langs Pineapple Rum's versatility makes it a perfect choice for a variety of drinking occasions. Here are some suggestions to get you started:

  • Neat or on the Rocks: Enjoy the rum in its purest form. Pour a shot over ice to experience the full flavour profile, allowing the rum to breathe and the flavours to unfurl.
  • Tropical Highball:  For a refreshing twist, combine 50ml Langs Pineapple Rum with 150ml cloudy lemonade or ginger ale. Garnish with a wedge of pineapple and a maraschino cherry for an extra tropical touch.
  • Piña Colada Remix: Put a delicious spin on the classic Piña Colada. Combine 50ml Langs Pineapple Rum with 25ml fresh cream, 25ml coconut cream, and 25ml fresh pineapple juice. Blend with ice until smooth and creamy.
  • Fruity Daiquiri: For a tangy and refreshing twist, combine 50ml Langs Pineapple Rum with 25ml fresh lime juice and 12.5ml sugar syrup. Shake with ice and strain into a chilled coupe glass. Garnish with a lime wedge.

Beyond the Basics:

Langs Pineapple Rum's vibrant flavour profile also makes it a great ingredient in more adventurous cocktails. Here are some ideas to inspire you:

  • Spicy Margarita: Combine Langs Pineapple Rum with tequila, lime juice, and a dash of jalapeno-infused simple syrup for a sweet and spicy margarita with a tropical twist.
  • Dark & Stormy with a Twist:  For a fruitier take on the classic Dark & Stormy, substitute Langs Pineapple Rum for dark rum. Top with ginger beer and garnish with a wedge of lime and a pineapple chunk.
  • Rum Runner Remix:  Give the Rum Runner cocktail a tropical makeover by using Langs Pineapple Rum instead of standard rum. Combine it with banana liqueur, orange liqueur, grenadine, and pineapple juice for a layered and flavourful drink.
