Plantation Pineapple Stiggins Fancy UK Launch

Written by Pete on . Posted in Rum Chat

Pineapple Rum… Is It Near You?  

Now that Plantation Pineapple has finally been launched, we are super pleased to be able to share the list of 80 (out of a total of 852) Marks and Spencer stores in the UK that have been allocated stock.
 
Stiggins FancyA word of warning, please do check with the store first – they may not yet have it on the shelf, or it may already have been sold (there’s not very much of it in the UK relatively speaking). We really don’t want to hear that you travelled a long way to find it was all gone!  And please remember, TheFloatingRumShack is just sharing the information, we’re not influencing M&S in any way or form…
 
For those in the Birmingham, Manchester or Edinburgh area – you’ll see that there isn’t an M&S listing. The UK Plantation team advised us that you might want to keep an eye on Selfridges in this case. Also, Drinksmonger in Edinburgh should have some to sell at some point.
 
From the moment we first tried Stiggins Fancy, we realised that this really was something special. The details can be found in our original article, but the blend of re-distilled Victoria Pineapple skins in Plantation 3 Stars and a maceration of the pineapples flesh in the Original Dark rum results in a flavour that is both tasty and amazingly integrated. To sip it straight up is a pleasure – all that wonderful complexity is something you’ll want to savour. I don’t say this lightly, but only the team at Ferrand could have achieved this – simply using some artificial flavouring or even just macerating a few regular pineapples was never an option. Making a pineapple flavoured rum is easy. Making Stiggins Fancy was a work of genius.
 
The signature serve for Planation Pineapple is the daiquiri but served over ice rather than straight up. The flavour of the rum presents itself in a more pleasing way – do try both ways to verify this for yourself, but having enjoyed a couple this way at the UK launch, I can confirm I’m a fan!
 
So M&S might have a large chunk of the allocation, but the remainder of the UK allocation has been reserved for selected ‘Pineapple Society’ bars. Following the launch of Plantation’s Pineapple earlier in the week, 20 UK bars and a further ten across Europe, such as Dirty Dicks in Paris, have been revealed as the founding members of the ‘Pineapple Society’. Each of these bars will have access to the rum and will be offering a pineapple daiquiri as a signature drink. Since the initial launch at Tales of the Cocktail, Alexandre Gabriel decided to produce further batches for limited wider release - with the UK set to receive 6,000 bottles this year.
 
The twenty ‘Pineapple Society’ bars in the UK are: Trailer Happiness, Aqua Shard, Opium, Mahiki, Little Bat, Portside Parlour, 68 & Boston, Hush, Coq D’Argent, Luggage Room Grosvenor Square, Street Feast, Mercury Bar, Tiki Bar & Kitsch Inn, Sovereign Loss, Rum Kitchen Brixton, HMMS Bristol, Cane & Grain, Liars Club, Copper Blossom and O’Malleys Pina Colada summer pop up.
