Based throughout the Caribbean (Barbados, Guyana, Trinidad & Tobago) St Abbs's Rums have 15 individual marks that define the spirit of St Abbs Reserve Rum and are all fermented from molasses, a natural by-product of sugar production and the historical source of all traditional Caribbean rum. This fermented molasses is distilled at its country of origin before these young rum spirits undergo some early stage blending in Barbados & Trinidad. Column still marks are produced across all four of the source countries, but the richly flavoured pot still marks are produced only in Jamaica & Guyana. Each individual mark brings a different characteristic to St Abbs Reserve Rum and they have all been carefully selected for the key aromas, flavours and textures that they bestow.
Aromas of butter toffee and brandy snap.
Painkiller Cocktail Recipe
So the legend goes, the Painkiller cocktail was invented in the 1970’s in the British Virgin Islands at a bar called Soggy Dollar Bar. It was originally made with Pusser’s Rum, a type of rum made using the British Royal Navy recipe. The drink was trademarked in the 1980’s so that if it’s included on a menu, it should include the traditional Pusser’s Rum. Of course if you’re making it at home, you can use any type of aged or dark rum - we won't tell anyone! Many rum cocktails use white rum or dark rum. But the Painkiller cocktail uses a whole other category of this liquor: aged rum or golden rum! Aging rum for a few years gives it a complex flavor. Golden rum can have notes of vanilla, coconut, almond, citrus, or caramel. The aged rum that we used here was Brugal Añejo Rum. Can’t find golden or aged rum or don’t have it on hand? You can substitute dark rum and the drink will work. You can also use white rum, but it’s not quite the same for this classic drink.
