TEEDA 21 years
TEEDA - RUM 21 YEARS
An exceptional terroir for an outstanding rum!
The Helios distillery has launched a 21-year-old aged version of its Teeda craft rum. It was distilled in 1998 and bottled by the third generation of the Matsuda family.
Helios is the oldest distillery in Japan and started producing rum in 1961, in response to demand from the American army who were stationed there at the time.
This rum is distilled from local cane sugar molasses in a copper pot still. The sugar cane enjoys mineral-rich soils and a tropical climate, giving the rum a mineral, saline character. With a tropical climate and an average temperature of 22.5°C, this archipelago is the only place in Japan able to grow sugar cane.
This rum has spent 21 years maturing in new American oak barrels. It is the only product of its kind, with just 2,500 numbered bottles made.
