Four Seasons Resort Nevis has exposed a bespoke signature rum at crowded money RUM Bar. The release of the rum coincides with the resort’s 29th Anniversary. To make the occasion, the primary bottle will be sold for $29,000 to represent the twenty-one years since the property opened.
This aged barrel of spirits was exclusively produced for Crowded Monkey RUM Bar. Only one barrel of Crowned Monkey Rum was created , generating 345 private label bottles. The individual Bottle 001 carries a genuine cask seal, and surely to become a rare connoisseur’s item, and allowing rum experts and repeat guests of Four Seasons Resort Nevis the chance to purchase a small piece of the island’s history.
Crowned Monkey Rum was aged for 14 Years in a single authentic Jim Beam Bourbon barrel and produced at the Foursquare Rum Distillery in Barbados . The rum spent its first 8 years in the tropics before being transferred for 5 years to mature in a more temperate climate and finally returning to the area for its end year before its domestic hand-filling, bottling and labeling in Nevis.
All of the oils developed over the years permit Crowned Money rum to have a perfect and creamy mouthfeel with notes of burnt caramel, light golden raisins and hints of vanilla, which provides it a delicate balance all through a sweet aftertaste on the finish of light toffee and even lighter honey and floral notes.
To represent Nevis, the rums Label was specially made to celebrate the lush beauty of the resort’s island house, as well as highlight the green vervet monkeys that are unofficial ambassadors of the island and the namesake of the rum bar at Four Seasons.
Aside from Bottle 001, visitors can also get a bottle number that is important to them for $288, or by the shot for $22. The rum will also be accessible in the bar’s new signature cocktail, known as the Peak.
