Archie Rose’s Aussie twist on white rum follows on from last year’s High Test Molasses Rum expression.

Inspired both by Sydney’s history of rum distilling, and Master Distiller Dave Withers’ love of great rum, this botting joins the Archie Rose core range.

“The history of rum production in Australia runs deep and the city of Sydney itself is affiliated with countless stories about rum trade, production and celebration,” Dave said.

“These narratives are part of what has shaped Sydney, and we’re thrilled to continue the tradition with the release of White Cane – our showcase of an Aussie-made white cane spirit.”

Production of this white rum occurred at Archie Rose’s new distillery in Botany, with the spirit cold distilled using new equipment and technology. Unlike previous white rum releases, which have been Australian versions of the classic Rhum Agricole style (made with the fresh pressed juice of the sugar cane), White Cane has been using high-test NSW molasses.

The final product is described as a ‘vibey, easy, elegant drink with a pillowy softness and refreshing finish’ with tasting notes including golden syrup, pineapple, marshmallows and subtle mint.

Archie Rose recommends trying this spirit in any number of classic rum cocktails including mojitos and daiquiris. The distillery hopes that White Cane will prolong the summer a little longer – suggesting drinkers ‘conjure those halcyon days in the depths of winter, as you swan around your living room in a robe, Piña Colada in hand.’

The bottling has a RPP of $69.99 and is available at Archie Rose’s website, and at bottle shops across Australia.
