OGASAWARA Rum 40%
Rum, Japan / Tokyo, 70cl, Ref: 1757
The Ogasawara Islands, once known as the Bonin Islands (‘uninhabited islands’) are located 1,000 km south of Tokyo and have only belonged to Japan since 1876, having previously been under British dominion.
They have been an administrative part of the Prefecture of Tokyo since 1880. Sugar cane plantations and sugar manufacturing activity here date back to this time. The islands were placed under American rule after World War 2, and were returned to Japan in 1968. After many long years of hard work to restore the island’s former sugar cane plantations, the Ogasawara Rum Liqueur Company was founded, and its first rum launched on the market in 1992. This is a traditional rum distilled from molasses. Profile: Unctuous, original. Lychee, white-fleshed fruit. Sweet spices. Honey.
