Since 2015, we have been the Illusionist Distillery

A young, yet rich in experience distillery crafting the unexpected spirits. Curiosity has remained true to the heart of our craft even after all these years. Never tiring, we challenge what is known to explore what is possible when tradition meets progress. With the Sentinel Rum, we have achieved the ultimate goal of creating a high-quality, complex rum that invites you to discover rum and cocktails in a whole new way. 

We believe in experiencing life with all the senses, a unique journey of discovery that never ends.

The Sentinel Scented Rum
A dark rum crafted like no other

Its distillate originates from Paraguay’s oldest organic sugar cane distillery and matured in-house together with Pedro-Ximenez-Sherry, French and American Oak casks. Our innovative “Acoustic Ageing” maturation method utilizes ultrasound, heat and oxygen to pronounce the toasty notes of the wood and age the rum to a clean, dark-amber finish. A marriage of tradition and progress, this process emulates the micro-reaction of conventional barrel aging, ensuring a remarkable depth of flavour. It allows us to rethink rum, while paying homage to the roots of a classic, South American dark rum. In the nose you will sense cocoa, butter toffee, dried fruit and dates. On the palate, it embodies a soft texture of signature caramel, vanilla, peach and lychee. 
Beyond its groundbreaking maturation method, the Sentinel is a beacon of sustainability. By disassembling casks into smaller reusable segments, we not only minimize waste but also significantly reduce the quantity of wood required. 

Perfect harmony of scent and versatility

Each bottle of the Sentinel Scented Rum comes with one of six Cocktail Scents - Fig, Cookie Dough, Dark Spice, Mandarin, Apricot or Hazelnut. These fragrances are distinctly adapted to the flavour profile of the Sentinel Rum for enhancing cocktail creations. Simply spray them in, over or on top of the glass and enjoy your drinks with a unique sensory variety.
