Daddy Sonoma Sugar Baron Style Rums honors Adolf Spreckels, a sugar
baron, industrial tycoon, Sonoma resident and the original Sugar Daddy.
The older sugar baron married the beautiful Alma May who was more than
half his age and was quickly propelled into the social spotlight. She
was heard calling out for her “Sugar Daddy” at their Sonoma mansion
while roaming their estate with a cocktail in hand. We have scoured the
Caribbean in search of exciting sugar cane rums that would meet the
Sugar Baron’s exquisite taste and brought them to Sonoma to age in our
fantastic climate in quality French Oak wine barrels. The Sugar Barron
lives on in Sugar Daddy Rum.
Each of our Sugar Daddy Rum expressions are a result of sourcing the finest Caribbean rum and aging it in high quality barrels at our distillery in Sonoma to produce new variations of classic rum styles. This process of aging rum is called early landing.
Sugar Daddy Light Rum is light distilled Jamaican pot still rum that is brought to Sonoma to mature in large puncheon barrels which previously stored Carneros Chardonnay. Our Sonoma Sugar Baron Style Jamaican early landing Rum has rich flavors of banana, coconut and pineapple which are typical of this style of rum. The Rum is aged for over a year in puncheons which gives it a soft but powerful elegance for light rum. The barrels add an additional tropical bouquet of flavors that suggest citrus, pear and floral that takes on a lightly straw blonde color. The marriage of the Jamaican rum with the crisp Carneros Chardonnay is a brilliant match that creates a stand-alone rum in a class by itself. Sugar Daddy aged light rum is perfect for sipping or your favorite rum based cocktails.
Sugar Daddy Amber Rum is heavy distilled Jamaican pot still rum that is more aggressively matured in Chardonnay barrels at our distillery in Sonoma. This medium body rum is rich in exotic island flavors of mango, banana, papaya and pineapple. The heavier charred Chardonnay barrels provide subtle influences of caramel, vanilla and buttery oak. Our Amber Rum has a strong Jamaican Rum foundation with the nuisances obtained from French oak chardonnay barrels built on top. This is a very versatile rum with rich flavors and a beautiful amber color.
