Beenleigh 2015 Transcontinental Rum Line
This Australian rum was produced at Beenleigh Distillery, Australia’s oldest registered distillery. This rum was distilled in 2015 and aged for 2 years in Australia before being moved to Europe to mature for a further two years.
Bottled as part of the Transcontinental Rum Line series by legendary French spirit merchants, La Maison du Whisky.
La Maison du Whisky, aka LMDW, was founded in 1956 by Georges Benitah and is now one of the largest whisky and rum importers and distributors in France, and known the world over. They opened their first shop in Paris at the legendary 20 Rue d'Anjou in 1968, importing their first Scotch malt whiskies in the 1970s. They are known for their expertise in not only Scotch, but Japanese whisky and rum too, and their collaborative bottlings, as well as their own independent labels like this one, are highly prized.
