Plantation Rum Original Dark Pineapple Stiggins' Fancy 750ml

With help from the spirits and cocktail historian David Wondrich, Plantation Distillery tried to revive this forgotten nectar.

They relied on several ancient recipes, and added a few traditional techniques from their own bag of tricks. The 1824 English Journal of Patent and Inventions and the 1844 Journal of Agricultural Socity were their main sources of inspiration--along, of course, with Mr. Dickens.

They infused ripe Queen Victoria pineapples in rich, aged Plantation Original Dark Rum for 3 months. Meanwhile, they macerated, also in rum, the bare rind of the fruit (where the pineapple's essential oil chiefly resides) and then distilled it, creating a bright pineapple essence to blend with the lushness of the infused Plantation rum.
