RENEGADE CANE RUM
PRE-CASK
ELEMENT: Earth. Fire. Metal. Spirit. Water.
where to buy the first releases

The cane plant, rum’s primary raw ingredient, is the natural source of its flavour. Thus the land on which it grows & its microclimate determines its character. Therefore we choose to explore the terroirs of Grenada – one place, one farm, at a time: captured here as fresh, vibrant spirit before cask ageing.

The modern marvel that is the Renegade Rum distillery was designed precisely to extol this individuality, with extended temperature-controlled fermentation for purity, & considered distillation for gravitas. We look to compare & contrast natural flavours, terroir by terroir. It is presented pre-cask: as unaged, freshcane juice spirit.

Pure cane, real provenance, terroir-driven, considered distillation:
Rum au Naturel.

Single Farm Origin: NURSERY

UPPER LA CALOME  •  YELLOW LADY •  POT STILL

The genesis of our pioneering project to propagate entirely clean & healthy heritage cane varieties began at our nursery farm. Nestled in La Calome Valley, with its almost terraced valley floor, it is made up of Hartman & Woburn clay loam soils & a profusion of volcanic boulders. For this rum we harvested the sucrose-rich variety we call Yellow Lady from big pumps field, which stands on the terroir known as Upper La Calome.

Single Farm Origin: LAKE ANTOINE

LOWER CRATER LAKE SOUTH  •  PURPLE TALLBOY  •  POT STILL

At Lake Antoine, intriguing terroirs wrap around the steep, seaward-facing slopes of a volcanic crater lake, where cane grows on granular Woburn clay loam – sparse & dry at the summit, deep & rich at the foot – fully exposed to the desiccating salt-laden Atlantic trade Winds. For this rum we harvested the sucrose-rich variety we call Purple Tallboy from Ball Pasture Field, which stands on the terroir known as Lower Crater Lake South.

Single Farm Origin: WESTERHALL

OLD RIVER  •  CLEAN ESTER  •  COLUMN STILL

The southern most of our farms is nestled narrowly between the coastal road & marshy mangroves of Westerhall Bay in front of its now ruined distillery. Here the moisture- retentive soils, enriched by the legacy of coconut & cocoa trees, provides a fertile & verdant terroir. For this rum we harvested the sucrose-rich variety we call Clean Ester from River View Field, which stands on the terroir known as Old River.

Single Farm Origin: HOPE

BOULDERS  •  CAIN  •  POT STILL

On the island’s south-eastern flank, sheltered from the Atlantic Trade Winds by a narrow mangrove belt, stands this distinctive terroir. Bright, iron-red clay & pyroclastic boulders & rich, alluvial soil & its cool, high water table ensures a humid microclimate with lush cane in the driest season. For this rum we harvested the oldest of our varieties, Cain, from Mamo Field, which stands on the terroir known as Boulders.

Single Farm Origin: DUNFERMLINE

HARVEST ’20  •  LACALOME RED  •  POT STILL

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.

Single Farm Origin: PEARLS

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.

Single Farm Origin: OLD BACOLET

HARVEST ’20  •  CAIN  •  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 Cain from Josh’s Field, which stands on the terroir known as Riverside.

Single Farm Origin: NEW BACOLET

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.
