51: A Peek Inside The Main Rum Company: A Gold Mine of Rare Rum Casks
Manage episode 325043767 series 2785242
In this episode, we welcomed Carsten Vlierboom of E&A Scheer back to the show to discuss the single cask side of the business—The Main Rum Company. If you've ever enjoyed an exceptional independently bottled release, there's a good chance it was sourced from Main Rum.
We dug into not only what they have in their aging warehouses, but what actually goes into managing such a large selection of rare and limited rums from all over the world. How do you know when to sell a particular cask? How do you decide which location to age each cask in? Which casks would Carsten most want to bottle for himself? And what exactly is an "infinity" cask?!
You'll hear all this and a whole lot more.
