Description

DR-116 is a strain specifically used for red fruit fermentations. DR-116's tolerance of high sugar musts and high alcohol concentrations makes it very suitable for the production of full-bodied red wines destined for wood maturation. DR-116 promotes blackberry and blackcurrant aromas in Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon, and red berry aromas in Merlot. 

It has proven to be a favorite amongst craft distillers in the production of rum.

This is my go to yeast for rum

Yes its a red wine yeast, but it ferments so well with molasses. Gives your rum a slight and almost fruity flavor.
