The General Wine Co. Unveils Gorilla Spirits Karisimbi Spiced Rum: A Spiced Rum Adventure Awaits

Calling all rum aficionados and cocktail enthusiasts! The General Wine Co. is thrilled to introduce Gorilla Spirits Karisimbi Spiced Rum, a unique and flavourful expression crafted with a passion for quality and conservation. This delectable spiced rum promises a vibrant and complex taste profile, perfect for sipping neat, enjoying in classic cocktails, or creating your own signature concoctions.

A Multi-Island Journey in Every Bottle

Karisimbi Spiced Rum takes you on a Caribbean adventure with its base of rum. The spirit boasts a multi-island blend, featuring unaged and aged rums from the Dominican Republic, Barbados, and Jamaica. This combination offers a depth of character, with notes from pot still rums mingling with the richness of aged Dominican and Barbadian varieties. The rum is then rested in ex-Bourbon casks, adding a touch of vanilla sweetness and subtle oaky undertones.

A Symphony of Spices: Blood Orange, Cinnamon, Ginger, and Vanilla

Where Karisimbi Spiced Rum truly shines is in its infusion of natural spices. Unlike many spiced rums that rely on artificial flavourings, Gorilla Spirits uses a meticulous process of distilling each spice – blood orange, cinnamon, ginger, and vanilla – in grain spirit. This ensures a harmonious and well-integrated flavour profile, where each spice plays its part without overpowering the rum's base.

Tasting Notes: A Vibrant Exploration for Your Palate

Nose: The initial aroma entices with a burst of juicy blood orange, intertwined with the warmth of cinnamon and a hint of ginger's spiciness. Underlying notes of vanilla peek through, creating a well-rounded and inviting bouquet.

Palate: The first sip delivers a delightful wave of flavour. The zesty blood orange takes centre stage, balanced beautifully by the warming cinnamon and the subtle heat of ginger. The aged rum base provides a smooth foundation, while the vanilla adds a touch of sweetness that lingers on the finish.

Finish: The finish is clean and satisfying, with the orange and spice notes gradually fading, leaving a pleasant warmth and a hint of vanilla on the tongue.

Karisimbi Spiced Rum: A Versatile Spirit for Every Occasion

The beauty of Karisimbi Spiced Rum lies in its versatility. Here are some ways to enjoy this exceptional spirit:

  • Neat: Savour the rum in its purest form. Pour a shot into a glass, allowing it to breathe for a few minutes. The aroma will blossom, and each sip will unveil the rum's intricate flavour profile.
  • On the Rocks: For a refreshing twist, serve Karisimbi Spiced Rum over ice. The ice will gently dilute the rum, making it slightly cooler and easier to sip while maintaining its complex flavours.
  • Classic Cocktails: Breathe new life into classic rum cocktails with Karisimbi Spiced Rum. Substitute it for standard rum in your favourite Daiquiri, Mojito, or Dark and Stormy recipe. The spiced notes will add an exciting layer of complexity to these familiar drinks.
  • Culinary Delights:  Karisimbi Spiced Rum can also be incorporated into culinary creations. Use it to flambé bananas for a decadent dessert or add a splash to marinades for grilled meats or fish.

Beyond the Bottle: A Commitment to Conservation

Gorilla Spirits is deeply committed to conservation efforts. With every bottle of Karisimbi Spiced Rum sold, a portion of the proceeds is donated to protect endangered mountain gorillas. So, not only are you treating yourself to a delicious rum, but you're also contributing to a worthy cause.
