Karukera Black Edition Alligator 70cl 45°
Karukera Black Edition Alligator is an old agricultural rum from Guadeloupe.
After ageing in French oak barrels, the Cuvée Spéciale Karukera Black Edition Alligator is refined in new barrels that have been previously burned. One of the heatings applied is carried out to carbonize the inside of the barrel, reminiscent of the rough and shiny texture of the skin of an alligator, hence the name of this expression. The result is a rum with notes of brown sugar and intense flavours of spices and smoke.
Aromatic profile: intense and spicy, with hints of brown sugar and smoke.
The history of Karukera rum is linked to that of Longueteau rums. When in 2005, François Longueteau took over the agricultural estate of the Marquisate of Sainte-Marie and his "Esperance" distillery with Grégoire Hayot to create an entity intended to enhance the rum from the distillery through ageing.
Karukera means "Island of Beautiful Waters" and refers to the first name given to Guadeloupe by the Indians before the arrival of Christopher Columbus.
It is within the domain of the Marquisate of Sainte-Marie, in Guadeloupe, dedicated to the cultivation of sugar cane and the production of rum, that the Rhumerie Karukera carries out all stages of production: maturation, reduction, brewing and ageing in oak barrels which once contained Cognac, Sherry or Sauternes.
This mastery makes it possible to tend towards high quality rums. Karukera offers a wide choice of rums for every occasion of consumption, for tasting or in cocktails.
