“The Folklore Series” is the new line of premium rums from Raising Glasses, a new independent bottler of whisky and rum from our area of Boston. Each bottle displays original artwork based on a mythological legend from the country that distilled the rum. Raising Glasses donates 5% of profits of these bottles to charities benefitting each country of origin.
THE LEGEND: Guyana’s Moongazer is a giant that roams the shoreline gazing at the moon ... until you run between its legs where you’ll be crushed! Creepy, but keeps the kiddies from the deadly night surf!
THE RUM: Over 250 yrs old, Diamond Distillery’s legendary Versailles still is one of only two wooden pot stills in existence (FIRE & WOOD aren’t a formula for longevity?!?) and this bottle is a classic example of its intoxicatingly pungent notes of raisin syrup, birdseed, mocha, charred banana, black tea and ozone.
DARK SECRET: After being seduced by this rum, we learned it contains added color!! Commonly done for color consistency, but purists may clutch their pearls. We bottled it anyway - you can still love your imperfect children!
AGING: 9 yrs UK aging
STRENGTH: 57.5% ABV
PRODUCTION: Molasses in 100% Versailles pot still
H20: We suggest adding water moderately
CHARITY: 5% of profits from the sale of this bottle goes to Blossoms of Guyana to aid educational opportunities for low income children.
