St Lucia Distilleries launched TZ Rum at this year's St Lucia Food & Rum Festival in November.

The brand name TZ was inspired by the troy ounce - the traditional measur ement when weighing precious metals.

This boutique Caribbean distillery produces a wide range of medal -winning rums and rum liqueurs, including Bounty, Javalatt, Element Eight, Chairman's Reserve and Admiral Rodney.

TZ is a blend of 2 to 7 Year Old premium St Lucian rums, distilled in copper alembic pot and continuous stills, then aged in American white oak barrels before a final polish in vintage port casks. The result is a red-gold rum with a clean, slightly sweet raisin, vanilla and nut character. It is elegant and well balanced for sipping or mixing.
