After the distillation, it is aged in ex-brandy vats, before being finished in charred American oak barrels for a minimum aging of two years in total. It is crafted with local ingredients. Sold in 1L-sized bottles with availability in western US (at 40% ABV) and in 700ml-sized bottles (at 38% ABV) in Australia.

"The rum is saddled by cinnamon, apple and honey. Vanilla beans and Mānuka honey make the rest of the beast, calmly plodding through a spice dotted and herbal oil painting. When a sip finally comes, it filled with vanilla-spiced chai and more honey. The consistency is richer than the taste, but equally rewarding. The finish is long with sweet spice moving across the tongue, turning tart and woody before the key vanilla bean makes its show-stopping appearance. "
