Madeira's Lost Spirit

The island of Madeira started the sugar culture at the same time and of its colonization in 1425. The Hinton family dominated the sugarcane sector during the second half of the 19th century and first half of the XX century due to its developed industrial unit that got to process 600 tons day.

It is still an old column of the old Hinton mill that currently produces this careful spirit in a brand recovered by a direct family member because of the affection he had to the sector. Currently the brand besides devoting itself to the production of its new Rum is committed to its aging.

Our 6-year-old rum, carefully aged in French oak barrels, has been blended with a 25-year-old rum, certainly one of the last rums to be produced at the old Hinton Mill facility, the latter was also subjected to a new aging process in our casks for another 3 years.

Finally, the product that resulted from this unique combination of rums of different ages was subjected to a final stage with a duration of 9 months.
