Rum William Hinton Single Cask Carcavelos 70cl
Region: Madeira Island, Portugal
Aged in fortified wine barrels from Carcavelos
6 year old rum, carefully aged in French oak barrels, has been blended with a 25-year-old batch, certainly one of the last to be produced at the old Hinton Mill facility, the latter was also subjected to a new aging process in our casks for another 3 years.
Finally, the product that resulted from this unique combination of different ages was subjected to a final stage with a duration of 9 months.
The island of Madeira started the sugar culture at the same time and of its colonization in 1425. The Hinton family dominated the sugarcane sector during the second half of the 19th century and first half of the XX century due to its developed industrial unit that got to process 600 tons day.
It is still an old column of the old Hinton mill that currently produces this careful spirit in a brand recovered by a direct family member because of the affection he had to the sector.
In 1845 William Hinton founded the distillery where the best Rum was always produced from the juices of sugar cane, carefully selected.
Currently the brand besides devoting itself to the production of its new Rum is committed to its aging quality.
