Ahoy! New rum has arrived

Is it possible to talk about run without slipping in a casual pirate reference?

Probably, but it just wouldn’t be as much fun.

We’ve got a criminal range of awesome new runs just delivered. And we are super excited to tell you all about them.

MEZAN PANAMA RUM 2004

The rums in this small batch have been aged twice in white oak American Bourbon barrels to give added flavour. Tropical marmalade flavours combine with burnt sugar notes. A touch of dried apricots and guava.

PLANTATION BARBADOS 5 YEAR OLD

This Barbados 5 year old rum is packaged in a dumpier bottle, and with an age statement rather than a vintage.

PLANTATION PINEAPPLE

This rum was created by Alexandre Gabriel, Plantation cellar master and David Wondrich, author of the book Imbibe! It is a tribute to the esteemed Reverend Stiggins whose favourite drink was the “pineapple rum” in the Pickwick Papers by Charles Dickens.

WESTERHALL RUM NO3

Smooth and mellow. The No. 3 is aged for 3 years in oak casks and the result is a round-tasting rum packed full of flavours from the ‘Spice Isle’. It is delightfully light and perfect for cocktails or with mixers. We love it with ginger ale and a slice of lime.

WESTERHALL RUM NO10

No. 10 is aged for 10 years in oak barrels and it’s so worth the wait. Once released from captivity this rum has a gentle temperament – smooth on the palate and rich in flavours; best enjoyed on the rocks or with club soda. For something a little more Grenadian, try it with the juice of a fresh green coconut.

BLACK MAGIC SPICED RUM

A dark spiced rum, Black Magic drinks smoothly straight up or as the key component in a cocktail. Essences of coconut and butter waft up from a snifter, and it’s a perfect pairing with some tropical fruit dishes like scallops topped with mango chutney.

BUMBU RUM

Based on original 16th and 17th century recipes used by West Indian sailors. Made using spices native to the Caribbean along with sugar cane from the islands as well as South America.

BARTI DDHU SEAWEED SPICED RUM

Barti Ddu Rum is a blend of fine Caribbean rum, spiced with notes of vanilla, cloves and orange. The extra secret ingredient is a subtle infusion of Pembrokeshire laver seaweed, known as Welshman’s caviar. The drink is inspired by a famous Pembrokeshire Pirate, Barti Ddu, or in English Black Bart.
