Enter the clandestine, Copenhagen Co-Lab conquerors of Rum with a cult following, they do their work, as they say, 'by way of the shadow', as in we know bugger all about them really. Phantom Spirits are taking custody of some unbelievable aged Caribbean rums, moving them over to Copenhagen and teaming up with some of the most respected brewers & producers in the region to then age and treat the rums in some very unique barrels. Albeit in tiny amounts, with a total production only sitting a bit over 3000 bottles all up, so true hen's teeth.
For their team up with The Coffee Collective & The Clumsy Bear Distillery (both outfits I could crap on about forever and I recommend you investigate) they have worked to elevate a 6yr Panama Rum through aging it further in a barrel from the Akmel Nuri Coffee Liqueur forged from the two outfits coming together when they adopted the barrel from Absinthe production. The resulting rum is this coconutty, figgy aniseedy, coffee-ey delight that's not quite like anything else.
