Who knew that great literature could be this tasty?
Plantation Rum is owned by French Cognac producer Maison Ferrand, who control no less than a dozen major brands premium spirits and liqueurs. Sometimes that is an iffy proposition, but not in this case because the folks at Ferrand are all about quality … and you can taste it. Plantation Rum is their top shelf Rum label. And mighty good stuff it is, too. They offer a variety of Rums from the Caribbean. Depending on the plantation and the country of origin, the Rums can vary between soft and aromatic to light and elegant … each one showing the gentle, experienced influence of Maison Ferrand.
“The Pickwick Papers” was the first novel written by the famous author Charles Dickens. One of the minor characters in that book — a Reverend Stiggins — complimented and enjoyed “pineapple Rum.” Plantation Rum set out to recreate this eighteenth-century literary delicacy. To make their Plantation Stiggins' Fancy Dark Pineapple Rum they take their signature Plantation Dark Rum and infuse fresh, hand cut Victoria pineapple fruit for three months. Simultaneously, they infuse the cut pineapple rinds for three months in Plantation 3-star Rum. Those two infusions are then married in casks. The result is an award-winning specialty “cocktail in a bottle.”
