Husk Distillers Pure Cane 50

, , , ,

Husk Distillers Pure Cane 50 (high flavour edition) is an extremely limited release from the team at Husk Distillers near Byron Bay. Husk Pure Cane 50 is an extension of their existing unaged agricole, Pure Cane. With the alcohol content sitting at 50%, Pure Cane 50 is an ode to traditional full strength and full flavoured rums so popular in the Caribbean.

Pure Cane 50 uses sugar cane from the end of the 2020 harvest season and had been fermented using 3 different kinds of yeast. This release had been distilled using column still distillation, with the distilled spirit was then slowly reduced, rested and gently stirred for 3 months to marry and preserve those bold characteristics.

Pure Cane (40%) was created to be lighter, more delicate and more accessible than most white agricole rums. Husk created this new world agricole to introduce the Australian palette to this unusual spirit in a style that is versatile to mix and sessionable to drink.

However rum best reveals its flavours at higher strength, and Pure Cane 50 delivers this complexity to rum lovers and bartenders who have been waiting for an Australian version of this iconic Caribbean spirit at its most popular strength.

Husk Pure Cane 50 has vibrant freen, floral and citrus notes. Sip in a Ti Punch or mix PC50 in your favourite cocktails for that extra flavour!

Husk Distillers Pure Cane 50 is crafted by Husk Distillers in the picturesque Northern Rivers region of NSW.

Inspired by the diverse and vibrant rum culture of the Caribbean islands and a yearning for fine Australian spirits, distiller Paul Messenger, along with his wife Mandy and daughters Harriet, Edwina & Claudia, embarked on a journey to create a plantation distillery on their cattle & cane farm, nestled in the green caldera surrounding Mt Warning in Northern NSW.

Husk’s vision was to create a premium, paddock to bottle agricole rum with a unique Australian expression. Their journey is now in it’s eighth year. They had to develop new skills and adapt new methods of small-scale cultivation, harvesting and crushing not used in the area before. They designed their distillery based on fermentation, distillation and maturation methods not typically used in commercial rum distilleries and the result is a rum that they are proud to say has the unique characteristics of our part of the world – true provenance.
