Noire - 5 Year Old Blend - French Style Rum
Before there was bourbon here in the U.S., there was rum. And what better representation of America's two legendary spirits than NOIRE, our 5 year old blend that sips like a bourbon. While it’s generally assumed a barrel-aged spirit is aged in a white oak barrel... (drum roll)
Noire is matured with a proprietary stave and barrel process. Our hand-charred aged staves include cuttings from local nut and fruit trees like hickory, cherry, persimmon, and pear, not commonly found in distilled spirits.
As a third-generation Louisiana timber farmer, our distiller/founder is obsessed with unique flavor profiles that are obtained from other varieties of hardwoods. Using trees planted by his own father and grandfather, he began experimenting with Noire’s aging process.
Wildcat Brothers Distillery (aka Gator Cove) is where the magic happens. Noire is an award-winning rum that sips well and plays well with others. Follow us on Instagram to watch what unfolds when mixologists weigh in!
Warm, sweet and just the right amount of honeyed perfume aroma. A slightly smokey taste mingles with dollops of maple. Dark stone fruit flavors brought out by aged, ancestral hardwood staves. Vanilla & white oak, pipe tobacco, and wild cherry.
