Rum from Quebec, made from Quebec products

Quebec’s reputation for gin and wine is second to none; A distillery set out to concoct a truly Quebec rum.

Montreal Distillery brews its Rosemont syrup with ingredients from Quebec.

“We’ve been taking our turn for ten years now, to move towards rum,” says Lillian Wolfsberger, in an interview on À vos affaires.

“We work with molasses. Quebec has a long history and a long history with molasses. Next, we chose three types of molasses, which are fermented in the distillery at a low temperature. This is kind of our secret, given the climate, as we move in the Charentes region,” explains Mr. Wolfsberger.

Rum is usually associated with southern countries; Rosemont rum does something new in this regard.

“Because we’re distilling molasses at low temperatures, we’re looking for aromas that are really typical and even very close to farming. When we give distillers that make the taste of farm rum, we manage to lock it in because we’re going to be looking for really very floral notes, but also notes of Typical farming with brine, a little taste of black olives, ”explains Mr. Wolfsberger.

The distillery also offers pineapple syrup, which simply has nothing to do with flavored rum.

“No, no, no! exclaims the distiller at that thought. Actually, it’s a golden pineapple from Costa Rica, which we buy in bulk. It takes 220 pineapples to make a batch of about 200 cans, which we leave to ripen in the distillery,” he explains.
