The Four Seasons Resort Nevis on the Caribbean island of Saint Kitts has marked its 29th anniversary by unveiling a lavish custom rum.

Limited to 345 private label bottles, the exclusive ‘Crowned Monkey Rum’ – named after the resort’s ‘Crowned Monkey Bar’ – has been produced by Foursquare Rum Distillery in Barbados and has been aged for 14 years in a single Jim Beam bourbon barrel.

It has then been laid for eight years in the tropics before being transferred for five years to age in more temperate climates, and finally bottled in Nevis. According to its makers, the final product boasts a smooth and creamy texture with notes of burnt caramel, vanilla, and light golden raisin.

Speaking about its launch, Pasquo King, Director of Food and Beverage at Four Seasons Nevis, said: “We wanted to create something special that spoke to the history of the property and its significance here in Nevis,”

“From its rich, caramel colour and light vanilla notes to the hints of aromatic floral scents that waft over the senses as it is poured into the glass, this is a rum that represents the legacy of the Resort while showcasing the history of the destination.”

The first edition of the ‘Crowned Money Rum’ 001 can be purchased for $29,000, while the remaining bottles can be bought for $288. Patrons can also order the rum by the shot at the resort’s Crowned Money Bar.
