The North Coast Bar Series
The North Coast Bar Series is about provenance and a sense of place, connecting us to this land and its elements, the salt sea air, fertile volcanic soil and pristine waters.
From the Gondwana rainforests and mountains of the caldera, to the surf, sand and rocky headlands of the coast, these rums and cane spirits are made in and of the North Coast of NSW.
SPICED BAM BAM
Australian Spiced Rum
Spiced Bam Bam was created to celebrate the salty coastal rainforests that run along the North Coast of NSW. These vast expanses of remnant Gondwana rainforest are home to some of the most ancient species in the world, and we wanted to explore these botanicals in a rum.
We started with 2-3 year old Australian Agricole selected from the 2013 and 2014 harvests. We then selected two rainforest species to focus on - wattleseed and native ginger, both which grow wild on our farm and across the region.
To complement these flavours we added mandarin, orange peel, cinnamon quills and vanilla beans to add spice & sweetness. The recipe was rounded off with a sprinkle of sea salt.
The whole spices infused in the rum for 3 months, resulting in a beautifully softly spiced rum that is good enough to sip on the rocks, or mix with ginger beer and a squeeze of lime for a classic Dark & Stormy.
We wanted to make a spiced rum that actually tastes like rum, with no artificial colours, flavours or nasties. All natural.
Pure Cane is the purest expression of our region. Made from 100% hand cut sugar cane grown on our farm, Pure Cane is how all our rums start.
After fermentation we double distill Pure Cane in our copper pot still, before allowing it to rest before bottling. Pure Cane can only be made during the harvest - each batch is seasonal and reflects that year's vintage, the seasons, the soil, the terroir.
Fresh, vibrant and delicate, Pure Cane smells sweetly of crushed sugar cane, with a grassy & creamy flavour. Softer in flavour than Caribbean white agricoles, you can mix this into back to basics cocktails with only 3 ingredients - Pure Cane, lime and sugar.
