Hartley & Parker Celebrates Isle of Fiji Rum

By September 27, 2020Connecticut, Top News

Plantation Rum’s Isle of Fiji Rum earned an Ultimate Beverage Challenge 2020 Chairman’s trophy and is distributed in Connecticut by Hartley & Parker Limited, Inc.

The team at Hartley & Parker Limited, Inc., celebrated Plantation Rum’s Isle of Fiji Rum for its recent win at the Ultimate Beverage Challenge 2020 competition, where it earned a 98-point rating and a Chairman’s trophy. Made using traditional techniques and local Fijian sugar cane, the rum is first aged in Fiji’s tropical climate in bourbon casks, then sailed to the southwest of France for a second maturation in French oak casks. This double-aging method paired with Fijian expertise creates a rum with warm notes of exotic fruits and raisins. The 40% ABV blended rum is sold in a unique 750-ml bottle, colorfully depicting its tropical roots in homage to the Fiji Islands.
