Embargo is a new rum label from Jean Moueix and Alex Sirech. Moueix is part of the family that owns top-shelf Bordeaux wine Petrus (as well as negociant Duclot) while Sirech used to work for Bordeaux wine magnate Bernard Magrez. Together they formed a new spirits company - Les Bienheureux. Even within the crazy, regulation-light world of rum, Embargo pushes the limits, bringing together rums from Trinidad, Cuba and Guatemala, as well as agricole from Martinique.

Embargo <br> Añejo Blanco

Añejo Blanco

ABV: 40%
Pack Size: 6 x 70cl
Country of Origin: Guatemala


The white rum from the Embargo range is actually briefly aged, leading to a very pale golden hue and a touch of warming oak-y spice on the palate. The colour stripped out by charcoal filtering,  but this delivers a smooth profile, with gentle oak still on the finish, and plenty of character to make a rocking Daiquiri or Mojito.

Tasting Notes:

Complex, round and very digest. Hints of banana, cut grass, Alpine herbs, brown sugar. Perfect for mojitos and mixology.
