NS Spirit Co. was born out of a desire to celebrate Nova Scotia: it’s people, its places, and its flavours. Their goal is to provide premium quality spirits to everyone in Nova Scotia at a price that anyone can afford to enjoy. Each product pays homage to the hard-working but warm people of Nova Scotia and the local job ad that inspired their branding:
“Local lobster fisherman from Ballantyne’s Cove, Antigonish Co. is interested in hiring a helper for the summer. Basic requirement: sober, alert & willing to learn.”
Fisherman’s Helper White Rum is tailored perfectly for the Nova Scotian rum drinker. It stands up tall in a mixed drink and it’s sweetness allows it to be enjoyed on it’s own.
The rich, sweet oak vanilla notes are attributed to the 2 years it spends in oak barrels in the Caribbean before making it’s way to Pictou County where the barrels are blended, and brought from cask strength to bottle quality – ready to be enjoyed.
I have tried many rums from around the world and as much as I want to support local rums, I have not been impressed with any, until this one. It’s a very clean and crisp rum perfect for mixing. It’s not over powering and allows to mix to to lead. For a white mixing rum, this should be on your shelf.
I enjoy rums from all points around the world. Always looking for the perfect sipping rums and good mixing rums. As much as I want to support the local rum producers, I have had little luck until I tried this.
It was clean and crisp with a smooth burn and an after taste that did not linger on to long. For a white rum to mix with, this is a very good choice. You should have a bottle of this on your rum shelve.
