Rounding out the expanding portfolio is the Full Cask Strength version of the company’s ‘Classic’: Single Estate Old South Georgia Rum. As is the case with the ‘Classic’, the Cask Strength Expression barrels are always bottled individually, and the strength will typically range between 105 to 120 Proof (52.5% – 60% ABV).
Château Élan executive winemaker Simone Bergese reached out to Richland Rum to request oak barrels to add the perfect finishing touch to a port the winery was aging. That has resulted in a brilliant, blush-colored limited edition, 30-barrel Château Élan cask exchange rum. On the other side of the partnership, the beer and port aged in the rum barrels can be recognized by a ‘Richland Reserve’ moniker adjacent to the Terrapin and Château Élan logos on the respective bottles.
