Unashamedly applying the philosophy and methodology of the world’s greatest winemakers, combined with the authority and expertise of groundbreaking single malt distilleries, ÉTUDES celebrate the individuality of rum’s fundamental primary ingredient: sugar cane. Each highlights a single terroir of cane, individually harvested, milled, distilled, matured and bottled entirely on Grenada.
We are curious about the most natural and profound flavours of rum, and our ÉTUDES bottlings offer fellow curious drinkers the opportunity to compare and contrast highly singular rums distilled from a diverse and distinct array of cane origins, varieties and provenances — ultimately the very building blocks of our Renegade Cane Rum.
HARVEST ’20 • LODGER • POT STILL
On the southern coast, protected from the full force of The Atlantic Trade Winds, Old Bacolet was one of the first areas to be cultivated by the French. A flat flood plain between two small rivers, these alluvial soils – Plains Clay Loam & Woburn Clay – & a high water table produce lush cane. For this rum we harvested the quick growing variety we call Lodger from Theo’s field Which stands on the terroir known as Silk Cotton Tree.
All cane, real provenance, terroir-driven, considered distillation: rum au naturel. The rum offers vivid, fresh citrus fruit and bright spices, which carry over notes of silky, indulgent vanilla custard, buoyed by an unctuous spirit texture.
HARVEST ’20 • LACALOME RED • POT STILL
A south-facing, steep-sided, sun-baked bowl, the amphitheatre of New Bacolet is planted with drought-tolerant cane on the weathered upper slopes, whilst lush growth enjoys the deeper, rich colluvial soils below: a textbook exploration of terroir & more rugged than nearby Old Bacolet. For this rum we harvested the sucrose-rich variety we call Lacalome Red from the “Goat Hill” field, which stands on the terroir known as Upper Combe.
Ascending into the mountains of St. Andrew, on the island’s north-eastern coast, nestles Dunfermline – once a venerable distillery lost to Hurricane Ivan, where for centuries its clay loam has been conducive to cane cultivation. For this rum we harvested the sucrose-rich variety we call Lacalome Red from Anderson’s field, which stands on the terroir known as Mango Lane.
HARVEST ’20 • YELLOW LADY • POT STILL
On the coastal plain, a stone’s throw south of the distillery, there is an intriguing terroir between mangrove & water meadow, with a distinctive bank of iron-rich volcanic laterite at its centre. Cane grows vigorously on this water-retentive soil derived from Woburn / Perseverance clays. For this rum we harvested the elegant variety we call Yellow Lady from the “Grapefruit” field, which stands on the terroir known as Flats.
HARVEST ’21 • LODGER • POT STILL
On the east coast plain, five miles south of the distillery, there is a hidden valley floor between two small rivers, a fertile place where cane grows vigorously on lush, water-retentive soil derived from Woburn & Perseverance silts & clays. We hand-harvested the lanky variety we call Lodger from the Swimming Pool Field, which stands on the terroir known as Flood Plain.
