El Destilado works with small, independent distillers to source, import and bottle rare spirits from across the world for inquisitive consumers. In a world where support and desire for traceability and ethical trade is paramount, they have begun to pioneer a unique method of sourcing previously untapped supplies of small scale liquid.

The high altitude causes the Java sugar cane varietal to have a longer growth cycle (around 18 months) than at sea level. The low temperature, especially at night also results in a slower fermentation process (all wild yeast), giving the finished product it’s own distinct flavour and aroma profile.
