South Pacific 2009 The Wild Parrot / Sansibar

An independent Fijian rum, bottled by The Wild Parrot. This single cask was bottled exclusively for Hidden Spirits' German distributor, Sansibar.

The Wild Parrot is a collaboration between Stefano Cremeschi and Hidden Spirits. Hidden Spirits is part of a new generation of independent Italian bottlers. Founded by Andrea Ferrari, the company operates an online store for fine and rare collectible spirits, as well as bottling some very respected independent single malts and rum.

Distilled at South Pacific Rum Distillery in 2009, continentally aged and bottled from single cask WP09623 in 2019.

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.
