Who am I: Producer
An authentic spirits focus
Nicolas Kroeger already boasts years of spirits expertise at a young age. Be it through his first experiences with distilling Schnapps at 15, or his own successful moonshine distillery at age 19 in England. Practice and true passion makes perfect!
His experience and high quality standards meant that for him, certain products were missing from the market and so he started with his own creations. Driven by his lifelong passion for spirits and taste, he has developed spirits according to his imagination.
Made by hand in small batches, unique products are created from carefully selected ingredients and the finest craftsmanship.
Authenticity is very important to us.
Wagemut - Characterful authentic spirits
We are convinced that spirits have more to offer than what can be found in a simple supermarket. Starting as young moonshiners, we have been trained by the best companies in the world. These experiences influence our work today and allow us to create something extraordinary.
The development in the world of enjoyment can be observed beautifully: Where initially only sweet rum was drunk, demand is gradually increasing for ever more complex drops. However, entering the world of "cask strength" presents some problems. Many bottlings are immediately out of stock and/or can be purchased at extremely high prices. This makes it extremely difficult to make recommendations.
THE SCC HOME BASE DNA
With our new bottling - the SCC Home Base - we make it easier to enter the fascinating world of cask strengths. We have created a rum that comes across as full-bodied with its 51.5% VOL, but still opens the door gently in proportion. The first batch is made up of four freshly emptied red wine casks, in which the 10-year-old Barbados rum from the West Indies Distillery is matured to perfection for a further three months.
NO Flavouring, NO Colouring, NO Bullshit!
We do not compromise on product quality
We at WAGEMUT don't like what's going on:
Information on the labels is falsified, sugar is added to make the rum softer and older,
and the stated age often has nothing to do with reality.
Wagemut PX-Cask - Our flagship
The market demands sweet, smooth rums for pure enjoyment. Many lovers of other spirit categories are also switching to rum because they have taken a liking to its sweetness.
We use Rum from Barbados, which was previously allowed to mature for an average of 10 years in oak barrels, was rounded off by storage in freshly emptied PX casks. The influence of the PX sherry ensures that a fruity sweetness passes into the rum. An authentic drop with a slightly fruity sweetness that opens the door to pure spirit enjoyment.
Ida van der Ille
The perfect rum for all sweet palate and vanilla lovers.
The soft sweetness simply seduces everyone - whether you like rum or not.
Aged rum is married with the queen of spices: Vanilla beans from Madagascar.
Then, slightly sweetened, it is allowed to mature to perfection in former cognac barrels.
That's why we only use real vanilla beans - the whole pod. The real, whole pod and nothing else!
No extract, and certainly no aroma.
We redefine spirits - without extract, and certainly without aromas.
