Noroeste Escarchado '50
An ancient bottle of Spanish rum produced in the 1950s which appears to have wax at the bottom and some sticks stuck in it for potentially decorative effect. We don't recommend that you drink or even open this bottle at all.
Please note that the label does not state the ABV of this product and that it is being sold as a collectable item only, we make no warranty or undertaking regarding the contents.
If you translate escharchado, you will see it means 'frosty'.
ron escarchado is made by pouring boiling sugar syrup into rum infused with fennel twigs, the sugar syrup then crystallizes around the fennel twigs, creating a frosty winter scene. It is drunk as a digestif or used to flavour other recipes. Yeah, I'd give it a go.
