Introducing a new aromatic twist on our iconic Stiggins’ Fancy Pineapple rum with an extra maturation in ex-peated Teeling Whiskey casks for a distinctive and delicious smoky touch. Say hi to the original gift for rum and whiskey lovers alike!

Stiggins’ Fancy Smoky Formula is a limited edition that is timed for end-of-the-year gift giving. The exuberantly decorated gift box tells the story of Plantation Rum’s inspired partnership with Teeling Whiskey – personified by the famous Reverend Stiggins setting out to explore the world from a hot-air balloon.

Stiggins’ Fancy Pineapple Rum name is a tribute to the character created by Charles Dickens in the Pickwick Papers, Reverend Stiggins, whose favorite tipple was “pineapple rum”… hidden in a teacup!

Hand-peeled rinds of Victoria pineapples are infused in our 3 Stars white rum, which is then further distilled. The pineapple fruit is separately infused in our Original Dark rum, and the two are blended to create a lush bouquet of tropical fruit and warm spicy notes.

This Smoky edition has a rich and delicious touch, accented by smoky notes and aromas of tropical fruit, pineapple, citrus peel and a hint of dry peat.

🥃 The palate opens with a structured, pleasant sensation of ripe banana, pineapple, and spices layered in a distinctive smoky finish.

A spirited pineapple innovation:

In his travels across the globe, Alexandre Gabriel loves to exchange ideas with fellow visionaries who share his insatiable curiosity. One such kindred spirit is Alex Chasko, Master Distiller and Blender at Dublin’s @teeling_whiskey Distillery.

Alexandre chose Stiggins’ Fancy Pineapple Rum to undergo a final maturation in oak barrels that had previously stored Teeling’s peated single malt Irish whiskey; the moderate degree of peat imparts a beautifully balanced note of smoke, distinctive but harmonious with the fruit-forward rum.

Stiggins’ Fancy Smoky Formula adds an unexpected touch to cocktails and reveals its diverse, complementary origins when sipped neat. Delicious discoveries are in store for whiskey and rum aficionados!
