The cane plant, rum’s primary raw ingredient, 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 - one place, one farm, at a time: captured here as fresh, vibrant spirit before cask ageing.

A south-facing, steep-sided, sun-baked bowl, the amphitheatre of New Bacolet is planted with drought-tolerant cane on the weathered upper slopes, whilst lush growth enjoys the deeper, rich colluvial soils below: a textbook exploration of terroir & more rugged than nearby Old Bacolet. For this rum we harvested the sucrose-rich variety we call Lacalome Red from the "Goat Hill" field, which stands on the terroir known as Upper Combe.

The modern marvel that is the Renegade Rum distillery was designed precisely to extol this individuality, with extended temperature-controlled fermentation for purity, & considered distillation for gravitas. We look to compare & contrast natural flavours, terroir by terroir. It is presented pre-cask: as unaged, fresh cane juice spirit.

Pure cane, real provenance, terroir-driven, considered distillation: rum au naturel.
