“Batavia Arrack” is a distillate based on sugar-cane molasses, produced exclusively on the island of Java, Indonesia. It’s comprised of a very specific range of Pot still distillates originating from the East Indies, produced on the Island of Java, Indonesia. It’s the “rum” of Indonesia. The fermentation process includes the addition of local fermented (red) rice; it is this, which sets it apart from Rum, although the base material is still sugarcane. Distillation of these products is carried out using very traditional Pot stills, adopting ancient Chinese distillers’ methods.
