The best yeld of distillates is optained by mixing them with the syrup prepared on the moment and made it cold.

RUM Distillates

To prepare quality confectionery

There are several types of rums with different tastes and perfumes that vary depending on the country of origin of the sugarcane distillate: Antilles Islands, Martinique, Cuba, Jamaica.
The basis for a very good rum results from a good sugarcane distillate. Sugarcane distillation takes place in the origin countries through rectification columns where it is stored into durmast barrels and afterwards aged. This distillate is refined through suitable aromatic procedures that make it be appropriate for confectionery purposes.

Rhum 4.0

RHUM 4.0
The evolution of our traditional rums

New products have been studied in order to provide the Ruffini range with even higher quality. They are different in concept as they have been made with distillation techniques that aim at obtaining a pure rectified distillate that does not contain unpleasant distillation residues or organoleptic contaminants.
Different from one another, but all with a high concentration of pure distillates; they aim, in addition to higher quality, even to a higher durability of flavour and aroma.

Classical Baths

Pure distillate with the traditional method of alembic

The distillate can be of plants, of aromatic flowers or fruits chosen and selected with care. They are alcoholic products, mainly at 40°, 60° and 70°, that appropriately diluted with water and sugar are used to soak sponge cake. This soaking is one of the main secrets of quality confectionery.
During the distillation with the traditional method of the alembic several vegetables matrixes are introduced with the addition of hydroalcoholic solution (alcohol + water); they are made be soaked and afterwards are distillated; they allow to axtrect the pure aromatic portion from the vegetable portion giving a very agreable and persistent intensity to the product.
The essential difference between distillates and alkoholates is actually the former ones' capability to keep the fragrance and the aromatic characteristics over the time.
