Rolling Hills Rum from Taconic Distillery. Born from sugarcane molasses, this gentle rum has been aged for two years in bourbon barrels and spends its last few months finishing in recently emptied Taconic Distillery’s Founder Rye Whiskey barrels. It is then cut to a mouth watering 80 proof with fresh spring water from our farm. In the glass, the rum is gold, copper and bronze depending on how it’s struck by the light. A swirl of the snifter and subsequent taste yield a touch of caramel complemented by vanilla and a hint of bourbon. The rum has a medium to long finish which leaves trails of baking spices gently warming your throat. Rolling Hills is a versatile rum, good for sipping and excellent for mixing.
