Discarded Banana Peel Rum is a unique and innovative spirit made from discarded banana peels. It is the creation of Discarded Spirits Co., a company dedicated to reducing food waste by creating delicious and sustainable spirits from ingredients that would otherwise go to landfill. To make Discarded Banana Peel Rum, the company starts with a base of Caribbean rum that has been matured in whisky casks. This rum is then infused with banana peels for two weeks, imparting a whole load of fruity, estery deliciousness. The banana peels are sourced from a flavour house which uses the fruit, but not the peels, so they would normally not have a use. Discarded Spirits Co. has given those peels a use, and the result is marvellous. Discarded Banana Peel Rum is a fruity, sweet rum with a complex flavour profile. On the nose, there are aromas of ripe banana, toffee, and baking spices. On the palate, the rum is initially sweet and fruity, with flavours of banana bread, banoffee pie, and sticky toffee pudding. As the rum develops, deeper flavours of milk chocolate raisins and crystallised ginger emerge. The finish is long and warming, with a lingering banana note. Discarded Banana Peel Rum can be enjoyed neat, over ice, or in cocktails. It is particularly delicious in a Discarded Banana Peel Daiquiri, which is made with Discarded Banana Peel Rum, lime juice, and simple syrup. The rum can also be used to create other cocktails, such as a Banana Old Fashioned or a Banana Piña Colada.
