Preparing an arranged rum is a great art and a lot of patience, especially during maceration.
The term rum arranged is a Creole term to differentiate from white rum because it was quite difficult to drink it, especially pure. We modified it by adding fruits, sugars, spices, in a way we arranged it.
However, each island has its own recipe, you can use:
- a white or old, agricultural or traditional rum,
- a sugar syrup with fruit or not
- whole or blended fruit
- spices : cinnamon, vanilla, cloves, nutmeg
Arranged rum is drunk during an aperitif, digestive or currently during a meal as an accompaniment to cheese or a succulent dessert.
The important thing is that it is to your liking and easy to drink.
