Husk Distillers Spiced Bam Bam
Cool name! What is it?
A craft rum – the Next Big Thing after the gin craze, supposedly – from a farm distillery in the NSW north coast town of Tumbulgum. (Try saying that after a few.) It’s quite unusual, too.
It’s a “rhum agricole” – made in the French Caribbean style from fresh sugar
cane juice, rather than molasses – that’s aged in oaked barrels for three years then infused with botanicals.
Like roasted wattle seed, native ginger, sun-dried orange peel, vanilla beans, cinnamon quills and sea salt. The aim is to capture the local terroir of subtropical coastal rainforests, Husk says.
