23. Wrecking Coast Muscovado Silver Spirit

Cornwall’s Wrecking Coast Distillery manufactured a spirit using muscovado sugar, a first for the UK.

Under EU regulations, a product can only be labelled ‘rum’ if it is made solely from molasses or sugarcane juice or syrup.

To make the expression, sugar and water are combined to create a syrup before a five‐day fermentation. After distillation, the spirit is matured for more than nine months.

On the nose, the expression has notes of salted apricot, green apple, pear drops and tropical fruits such as pineapple and mango. The palate offers a “fresh, grassy and earthy sugarcane flavour, akin to a young agricole”.
