Default Apple Tree

I do not know quite how to categorize this new rum. The base is apple wood matured, but in a fit of blending excitement I did add a little of my apple infused rum as well. That is why I am calling this one Apple Tree instead of Apple Wood.

My wife thinks this may be the best one yet.

I am serious as to how others think such a thing should be categorized, both for marketing and for competitions. While many rum producers add different things to both the fermentation and the blend... and then hide it, that does not fit well with my integrity. So this is not a "pure" product of distillation and maturation, though that is the main flavor group. It does have a hint of something extra.
Overall, I would like to think of this as a premium dark rum rather than a flavored rum. What do you think?

Apple Tree sounds good to me for a name. But I'm not sure what else you're looking for... A statement of what it is? "Fine rum aged in apple-wood casks blended with apple-infused light rum." "A unique blend of rums, both apple-wood aged and apple-infused." Something like that?


Personally I'd just label all your bottles with "Temptryst. You won't be disappointed."

Could you describe how the flavour is blended into the process? In fact it would be fascinating to get an insight into the entire production process and how it is set up.

Certainly can't wait to lay our hands on some of the product. Can I ask where the name Temptryst came from?

How does "Apple Barrel Rum" sound to you? Not that it's aged or blended in apple barrels, but it sure sounds marketable.

I think you should call it Temtryst Apple Wood still, I think Apple Wood sounds yummy.I`m also interested in how the flavour is blended into the process?

You need to have similar names for the entire line. I would just name it Apple Wood if the added infused rum is a very minor part. Or if you have an infused rums line just add it there and advertise it as the flagship of the infused rums line since you consider it as a premium dark rum.

The trademark rules make it difficult to register a word or name that already exists so we created something new, or at least a new spelling, after weeks of discussion and suggestion on my SwordArts.com forum.

We are set up to mature hundreds of small experimental batches in order to look for peak flavors according to repeatable variations. Once I determine my base flavor, I run a much larger batch to use as a base. Then small batches may be added in order to expand the breadth and complexity. There is lots of tasting, both in selecting what will go in, and checking the results as I bring it all together.
