The Fading Light from J. Gow is a pure single cask aged rum which is inspired by pirates and distilled just metres from the sea on a tiny island in Orkney.
Made entirely in Orkney, the rum has been aged in chestnut casks for an ultra-smooth and complex flavour. Chestnut was chosen as it is more porous than oak which means that the rum matures quicker. This is beneficial in a cold climate such as Orkney where'd you'd usually expect a slow maturation process.
Bottled at 43% ABV with no additional sugar or colouring.
The name comes from the glow of the sun that never truly sets in the summer, or the dying light of short winter days. Known locally as the grimleens, the eerie dusk in Orkney has inspired many tales of ghosts and spirits.
