Episode #30: Behind the Bottle: The New Fiji Blend from Holmes Cay & The Rumcast (w/ Eric Kaye)
Manage episode 295930797 series 2785242
Big news: we collaborated with Holmes Cay to co-create a new rum release! Meet Fiji Rum, a blend of pot- and column-distilled, molasses-based rum that was distilled at South Pacific Distilleries in Fiji. In this episode, we sat down with Holmes Cay founder Eric Kaye to take you through the unpredictable series of events that led to the rum’s creation, all the decisions that went into bringing the release to life, why we settled on this particular blend of rums (and others that we considered), what sets it apart from other rums you may have had from Fiji, and much more.
Check out the Holmes Cay website for all the specs and details on the rum.
