Charanda - El Tarasco Gran Reserva Anejo - Extra Aged 70cl

Charanda - 'Mexico has a rich history of making rum from sugarcane, dating back to when the Spanish first brought the plant to the country in the early 1500s. Charanda is the only sugarcane distillate with an official protected denomination of origin (DO), joining other established spirit designations like mezcal, tequila, bacanora and sotol when the appellation was established in 2003. The expressive, terroir-driven rum can only be produced from fresh sugarcane juice, molasses or piloncillo (cane juice that is preserved via boiling, evaporation and caramelization), and it can only be made in 16 of 113 municipalities in Michoacán. The region is known specifically for this soil; the people who lived in the Tarascan state during pre-Columbian times (roughly where Michoacán and parts of Jalisco and Guanajuato stand today) called the dense, nutrient-rich earth charanda, a word that translates from the Purépecha language to mean “red soil” in English. Charanda is also the name of one of the country’s most intriguing native spirits, a cane distillate that’s been made in the region for more than a century.'

Appellation of Origin: Charanda

Sommelier Notes

  • Colour: Dark mahogany.
  • Aroma: Reminiscent of dates, peaches in syrup, and nuts
  • Palate: Harmonious balance between sweetness and acidity. Subtle and elegant palate, rich but with a dry finish.

    El Tarasco Gran Reserva Anejo is ideal for sipping but also works a treat in the cocktail Devil's Knee.
