That Boutiquey Rum Co Riverbourne Distiller 3 Year Rum

, , , ,

That Boutiquey Rum Co Riverbourne Distillery 3 Year Rum is the second of TBRC Australian Series releases and comes from Riverbourne Distillery.

Our second Australia Series is for our friends down under, as an Australian Exclusive (oohh ahhh)

This bottling takes us to Riverbourne Distillery, a set up being run by Australia’s oldest distiller Martin Pye. Martin utilizes a wide range of yeast strains, and the fermentation includes the use of dunder – a nod to Jamaican style production which interested Martin. Once distilled, this Rum was matured in carefully managed, re-charred ex-wine casks which really gives the Rum a unique character.

Riverbourne Distillery uses small casks – 25 & 50 litres – opposed to the more commonplace 200 litre – that have previously held Red Wine from the Napa Valley, California. The casks are  scraped, re-charred and re-coopered with virgin American oak ends offering a complex space for maturation.

We wonder if the team struggles a bit with the wombats at the distillery, but as our label shows, Martin is ready to play whack-a-mole with the light fingered marsupials.

TASTING NOTES:

Nose: A feast of fruits, ripe mango and papaya, vye with dates, and hints of liquorice and cloves. Lots of sweet caramel.

Palate: Sweet and oily over the palate, jammy, developing heavy fusel notes.

Finish: A bite of bitter coffee and a black pepper

That Boutiquey Rum Co Riverbourne Distillery 3 Year Rum was crafted by Riverbourne Distillery in NSW Australia.

Riverbourne is small craft distilleries that have sprung up in the last decade, and its founder and proprietor – Martin “The Kid” Pye – is the closest thing to a scientist I’ve seen in researching these little outfits. The man is a third generation pharmacist and has studied microbiology, biochemistry, chemistry and mathematics in his career, suggesting he possesses a medieval alchemist’s mindset, and likes seeing how things work, how they’re made, and what makes them tick. He founded his small operation in 2015 and took the time to learn from Redland’s Distillery in Tasmania (one of the few completely “paddock-to-bottle” distilleries in the southern hemisphere, it is said), sourced a 900-liter steam jacketed copper pot still (named “Tilly”) and set about making tasty whiskies and rum.
