That Boutiquey Rum Co Black Gate 3 Year Rum

, , , ,

That Boutiquey Rum Co Black Gate 3 Year Rum is the first of TBRC Australian Series releases and comes from Black Gate Distillery.

Founded by husband and wife team, Brian and Genise Hollingworth, Black Gate Distillery started with whisky, before expanding into rum production. Their Rum output now equates around a thousand litres per annum, a quarter of the distillery’s overall production.

Genise sources molasses from Queensland, and she runs a super long, two week fermentation using a speciality Rum yeast. The distillery uses direct fired pot-stills, which are somewhat rare in the Rum world, but are instrumental in producing Black Gate’s full flavoured rum.

It’s a double distillation, with the feints recycled during the spirit run. After all that love and attention, the Rum is matured in 100 litre Tawny casks, the Australian equivalent of Port Wine. Oh, and the word is that this batch was distilled on Genise and Brian’s 10th Wedding Anniversary, making  this release even more of a celebration!

Our Black Gate label captures a beautiful, sunny day at the distillery, complete with Frankie the dachshund, who appears to be herding a group of trespassing Emus (with distillery equipment under their wings) off of the property. Feels like there might be a story to tell there eh?
