We are pleased to announce that we have in stock Deadhead imported rum from Mexico. This potent, but smooth drop has the nickname ‘VooDoo Juice’. And it is known to take those who consume it on a ‘Magical Carpet Ride’. You need to judge for yourself, come in a try your favourite rum mixer or on the rocks. And yes, it can send you sideways.
Deadhead rum is most recognisable as the aged rum in the shrunken head bottle: a striking presentation that is meant to represent the “tsantsa,” the trophy retained by a victorious warrior over his opponent.
The rum itself is an aged variety coming from Vera Cruz, Mexico sourced at an undisclosed location. The distillate base is said to be both pressed sugar cane juice (in the French rhum agricole tradition, which usually means to us an earthy, vegetative quality) and molasses (a more typical rum base that we mark with a deep sweetness).
It is aged for 6 years in European Oak prior to bottling. There is a final resting period in a combination of whiskey, and various wine casks for additional flavors.
