Ryoma Rum - aged 7 years

€90,00 EUR

  • Made from sugar cane juice and aged for seven years in oak barrels
  • It has aromas of vanilla and caramel
  • Nose : rich, heady. Gentian root slightly precedes peat, ashes and camphor.
  • Mouth : concentrated, intense. The smoke is satiating, the spices strong (cloves, nutmeg). Camphor is always there
  • Overall : long, taut. The flesh of ripe fruits (apple, peach) and other exotic fruits (pineapple, banana) accompany until the retro-olfaction
  • Produced from sugar cane grown on the island of Shikoku
  • This rum is named after a historical legendary warrior

Ryoma Rum, located on the island of Shikoku in the south of the Japan, is the oldest sugar cane plantation in the country. It lends its cane to the production of this rum thanks to the extraction of its juice by grinding.

Once the Ryoma rum has been distilled, it will rest in oak barrels for 7 years, and it is the contact between the rum and the wood during all these years that will give it its light golden hue.

The surprise of this rum comes once in the mouth, since it bears little resemblance to rum as we know it. It would be closer to an eau-de-vie or a sake with a vanilla and caramelised taste mixed with citrus fruits.

It is its notes of vanilla tea and jasmine flowers set on an iodised aftertaste that Ryoma rum will bring you even closer to Japan.

Japan-Best is first and foremost a story about Japanese craftsmen with the influence of contemporary design. We are inspired by the timeless beauty of traditional Japanese craftsmanship, and their ability to adapt to our modern lifestyle. The more brands we meet, the more passionate we become about the stories behind each product; the skills of the craftsmen, or the long tradition of an object left unchanged for generations yet somehow remaining contemporary.

Japan-Best is a collection of Japanese brands, which we have selected for the originality of their design, the quality of their production, the fact that their production is “Made in Japan”, and the long history that they maintain, quite often for several generations.

Our selection of Japanese food is also based on craftsmanship in agriculture. We choose brands based on how they are made and we love brands that continue to use traditional natural techniques to grow food and prepare it. Good packaging and design is always and added joy to find!
