Echo Spirits Distilling Co. Cherrysmoke Rum
In the spring of 2020, with the pandemic slowing our rum sales, we decided to begin an experiment and put some of our white rum into a barrel to age for a few years. Every few months, we would taste the barrel, never truly liking it, before sealing it back up and waiting. Here's a secret, friends. This is the trick of a distiller: don't like the way a barrel is developing? Wait a little longer and see what happens.
We decided maybe a unique finish would be appropriate, so we toasted some wood chips from a cherry tree. Naturally, when we opened the barrel to drop in the chips, we took another sample, and this time something had changed - we loved it. And then we did a crazy thing and dropped the cherry chips in anyway. This is the epitome of the Copper Label Series - playing, tinkering, and experimenting.
