Portsmouth Distillery Cinnabar Spiced Rum: A Voyage of Discovery in Every Sip

Introduction

Set sail for a world of flavour with Portsmouth Distillery's Cinnabar Spiced Rum. This award-winning spirit, crafted in Hampshire, England, takes you on a delightful journey for the taste buds. Here at The General Wine, we're thrilled to offer Cinnabar Spiced Rum, a unique expression that's perfect for sipping neat, mixing in cocktails, or adding a touch of warmth to your favourite desserts.

A Story in Every Bottle

Cinnabar takes its name from the Cinnabar moth, a resident at the distillery's home in Fort Cumberland. This beautiful moth is known for its vibrant red and black wings, reflecting the rum's own depth of character. Made using the distillery's very own 1968 white rum as a base, Cinnabar undergoes a second distillation where a symphony of spices comes into play. Think warming cinnamon, pungent cloves, and exotic cardamom alongside the citrusy zest of orange peel. A touch of coriander seed adds a hint of peppery intrigue, while the subtle presence of Szechuan peppercorns introduces a gentle numbing sensation. Finally, Costa Rican sugar syrup and a hint of vanilla round out the profile, creating a spirit that's both complex and inviting.

Tasting Notes

  • Colour: Crystal clear. A testament to the careful distillation process, Cinnabar boasts a beautiful clarity that allows the drinker to appreciate its purity.
  • Nose: The initial aroma offers a warm welcome. Cinnamon and nutmeg lead the charge, intertwined with hints of orange peel and vanilla. As the rum opens up, a touch of clove emerges, adding a touch of depth.
  • Palate: The first sip is a delightful surprise. The expected sweetness from the sugar syrup is beautifully balanced by the warming spices. Cinnamon and cardamom take centre stage, while the orange peel provides a refreshing citrus note. The vanilla adds a touch of creaminess, and the subtle Szechuan peppercorns leave a lingering, intriguing tingle on the tongue. The 41% ABV provides a pleasant warmth without overwhelming the flavour profile.
  • Finish: The finish is clean and lingers pleasantly. Hints of cinnamon and vanilla fade gently, leaving a touch of spice on the breath.

Serving Suggestions

Cinnabar Spiced Rum's versatility makes it a true all-rounder. Here are a few ways to enjoy its delicious flavour:

  • Neat: For the true rum aficionado, Cinnabar shines when sipped neat. Allow the spirit to breathe in a glass for a few minutes to unlock the full spectrum of aromas and flavours.
  • On the Rocks: Enjoy Cinnabar on the rocks for a refreshing twist. The ice will slowly melt, diluting the rum slightly and creating a more easy-drinking experience.
  • Classic Cocktails: Cinnabar elevates classic rum cocktails. Try it in a Dark and Stormy for a spicy kick, a refreshing Mojito for a summery twist, or a warming Hot Buttered Rum on a chilly evening.
  • Modern Mixology: Cinnabar's complex flavour profile makes it a perfect base for exploring modern mixology. Experiment with different fruits, herbs, and spices to create your own signature cocktail.
  • Culinary Delights: Don't just limit Cinnabar to drinks. A splash in marinades for grilled meats or fish adds a touch of warmth and depth. It can also be used in desserts like rum cakes, bread puddings, or even a boozy caramel sauce for ice cream.
