About Batavia arak Edit

Wikipedia Article About Batavia arak on Wikipedia

Batavia Arrack is only distilled in Indonesia. It is the "rum" from Indonesia, because it is distilled only from sugar cane, like rum. It is a pot still distillation, on a type of still which was very much influenced by the Chinese, who brought the distillation process to Indonesia a long time ago. To start the fermentation local fermented red rice is used, which together with the local yeast, determines the unique flavour and smell of the distillate. The distillate is distilled at approx. 70% alc. vol. Like rum, Batavia Arrack is often a blend of different original parcels, to come to a constant quality.
