Midnight Flyer is the world’s first champagne barrel-aged rum. A groundbreaking collaboration conjured up by Phantom Spirits, Larmandier-Bernier, and The Night Flight Orchestra.
8 year Barbados rum was laid to rest in the dark, yet decadent hollow of a champagne barrel from the biodynamic Chardonnay kings that is Larmandier-Bernier. Pulled from the charred pit of scorched oak and smothered embers, the Barbadian rum is saturated in dense notes of flavorful tobacco, green mango, vanilla, toffee and burnt brown sugar. The heavy, tropic warmth of the base rum is lifted skywards by a fresh breeze from the vine-clad emerald green slopes of Côte de Blancs in Champagne, contributing with a bright fruitiness and subdued acidity. Born in an unknown bypass of the transatlantic jet stream, Midnight Flyer, though unconventional to its core, is the result of a true match made in heaven.
