South Pacific 2003 Bar Finch 15 Year Old
The South Pacific distillery is located in Lautoka on the island of Fifi and began production in 1980 in order to reduce their need for imported spirits like whisky and gin. The decision to make rum in addition was logical given the country had an active sugar industry to provide it with molasses. Today it is a subsidiary of the Australian brewer, the Fosters group, who bought the Willowbank distillery in New Zealand from Seagram in 1997, moving its pot stills to South Pacific the same year. In addition, rum is also distilled on a three-column continuous still.
This single cask was bottled in 2018 for Bar Finch in Kariya, Japan.
