WTF is Élevage Tho? #AllThingsRum
Themes: Rum Stage
When a rum sits in your glass it communicates a sense of self, but just how did that sense of self get there? Élevage is an elusive word in the English language with no exact translation. It communicates the 'rearing' or raising of something with an aspiration to excellence. It captures many small decisions coming from the hand of the rum maker that together over time, crafted day after day, culminate into what becomes the final expression or experience of the rum. Join me and we'll geek out and go deep on how flavors are coaxed, tamed, and evolved from raw distillate off the still to the refined elegance that leaps out of your glass through the daily craft of élevage practiced by rum distillers across the globe.
