Old Salt Rum
42% ABV, 50cl.
The first rum ever distilled and distributed in the UK. Old Salt Rum is the original English golden rum that was voted World's Best Rum in 2014: nothing imported here.
We start by fermenting 100% pure sugar cane molasses, as opposed to sugar cane syrup, which is used to make most commercial rums. Using pure molasses is very tricky and less profitable, but absolutely worth the effort for the richness and depth.
We distil three times to grab the quintessential flavour of rum. No salt here: look for raisins, cracked caramel, Christmas cake, vanilla and a touch of banoffee pie. Rich flavours from the molasses, leaving the harsh bits in the still, making it smooth enough for sipping. Matured in English oak casks.
We recommend serving it; or try it with ginger beer, ice and a chunk of lime.
