Lemon Hart (Rum)
In 1720, Lemon Hart's grandfather began to establish himself as a reputable spirit merchant, importing and trading Caribbean rums. It was his grandson, Lehman "Lemon" Hart, who took charge of the family business in 1790 and began to move away from trading and into the blending and production of rums. Thus, by the end of the 18th century, Lemon Hart had created his own special blend using only rums from the Demerara region of Guyana. This signature blend was so popular at the time, that Lemon Hart found itself appointed as an official supplier of rum to the British Royal Navy.
Lemon Hart Original is a classic black rum in the British style. This rum is distilled, aged in bourbon barrels, and blended all within the Demerara region of Guyana, which is renowned for its sugarcane plantations and production of excellent rums. The Lemon Hart distillery is the owner of the last old wooden coffey still to be in operation. It is this still along with the wooden pot still that offer Lemon Hart rum their distinctive flavours and distinguishing aromas.
Well-balanced but complex, Lemon Hart Original is bold, letting off an explosion of flavours and aromas in the mouth. It can be enjoyed alone or mixed with cola, which, paradoxically, causes the rum to have a more pronounced flavour. Try it with other mixers to see which facets of flavour you can tease out.
