It’s the Moscow Mule of high-test Rum.
 
Biggar and Leith is a revitalization of an 18th century Spirits business founded by the great-great-great-grandfather of the current owner — a Mr. Thomas Gladstone — in Edinburgh. The current iteration of Biggar and Leith is based in New York where they manage their small portfolio of adult beverages which are produced locally and mixed and aged under contract with a distillery in Cognac, France.
 
Spytail Black Ginger Rum is obviously a spiced Rum. But most spiced Rums focus on cinnamon, clove, allspice, and other traditional baking spices. Spytail Black Ginger Rum puts the Ginger way up front by macerating fresh ginger root in a blend of Caribbean Rums. The result has a flavor profile like a strong Ginger Beer infused into a black Rum. Almost a Moscow Mule of high-test Rum… if that makes any sense. And it works really well, especially in tropical cocktails. The ginger and other spices add a good amount of heat that balances the fruit and sweetness nicely. And we think it pairs great with both sushi and jerk-chicken. Seriously.
 
 
Smartass Corner:
According to Biggar and Leith, The Spytail was one of the first mechanical submarines invented in France near their distillery partner. This plus the nautical theme lent its name well to their Rum brand. The bottle is shaped like a bathysphere, which is kind of cool too.
