Indian Ocean Company and Berry Bros & Rudd Spirits have unveiled a VSOP expression of Penny Blue Mauritian rum, marking the first VSOP release from the Medine distillery.

The VSOP (40% abv) is aged for a minimum of four years in a combination of ex-cognac, whisky and bourbon casks. It is said to be an authentic small-batch single-estate Mauritian rum, distilled from the molasses of home-grown sugar canes, matured in oak.
