El Destilado, Wild Ferment Oaxaca Rum

RRP £30.95

Established by two London bartenders, El Destilado is dedicated to winkling out spirits from Mexican distilleries so micro they’d normally slip under the radar. Mezcal is its speciality, which is useful to know when tasting this white rum, which has a rustic, almost cidery nose, and a palate that combines minty camphor, woodsmoke, apples and clay. The rum equivalent of natural wine – you’ll either love it or hate it.
