A fine example of elegant Italian glass designed and produced in Milan.
To ensure an optimal and stable climate surrounding the bottle it is stored
in a handcrafted wooden box especially made for this purpose.
For the rum to retain its characteristics after being opened it is important to create a stable and consistent climate around the bottle. In comparison to metal and cardboard wood maintains a more constant climate with significantly less fluctuation during a high or low temperature change.
Beech is a hard type of wood and because of its strength and durability it was the Ideal material.
The box is handmade by a regional carpenter in Northern Italy and using only the finest grade of italian wood created it especially for An Crann Darach. After being assembled each individual box is sanded, varnished and hand labeled with a metal etikette.
