Navegante – Capella Singapore’s very own Rum
Capella Singapore presents a unique Rum hailing from Barbados
Singapore, 19 November 2015 – Anticipated to be one of the finest liquor concoctions on the island, Capella Singapore announces the launch of its very own brand of rum – Navegante.
Working in tandem with master rum blender Richard Seale in Barbados, Navegante, a name which means “Navigator” in Spanish, tells a compelling story of the age old relationship between rum and the sea, where rum was a fundamental part of tiding valiant seafarers through their long voyages.
A true embodiment of the Capella spirit of marrying tradition and heritage with modern innovation, Navegante is categorised as a ‘single blended rum’, where by the traditional “pot still” distillation method is combined with the modern-day “coffey still” system to produce a “single distillate” rum.
Giving the rum its unique flavour is the double maturation process whereby the rum is aged for the first three years in ex- bourbon American Oak, then five years in ex-Cognac French Oak.
Navegante was created by Richard Seale, the fourth-generation Master Distiller and Blender for Foursquare Rum Distillery, a family owned Rum house located on the island of Barbados in the West Indies and dating back to 1926. Though firmly grounded in a philosophy of traditional spirit making, innovation and breaking conventions has always been a hallmark of the rums created by Richard Seale.
Capella Singapore’s Navegante will be featured in some of Bob’s Bar’s signature cocktails, including the Bob’s Fresh Pressed Mojito or can be enjoyed straight up at S$18++ per glass.
The rum is also available for purchase at Bob’s Bar at S$300++ per 750 ml bottle from 1 December 2015.
Navegante is best enjoyed in an Old Fashioned or Rum Manhattan. For rum connoisseurs who prefer simplicity, neat or over a big ice cube will be equally indulgent. To satisfy drinkers with a sweet tooth, the Rum will go perfectly well with chocolates or preserved cherries. Finally, an ideal mixer would be freshly pressed apple juice or simply with a splash of coconut water to enhance the tropical feel.
