English Spiced Rum
Spicing rum traditionally involved sweetening poor quality rum to mask the taste: ours is a refreshing alternative. Our scratch distilled Old Salt Rum is infused with red cherries, hibiscus and vanilla, plus a few other special bits that Dr J calls ‘pixie dust’. The result is a delicious English rum that’s great for sipping, or as a base for cocktails. Our favourite is Alcoholic Assam: a double of English Spiced Rum, a double of tonic, two slices of ginger and a few torn mint leaves.
42% ABV, 50cl.
This is the original English Spiced Rum: the first spiced rum made with a UK distilled spirit. We use our tremendous Old Salt Rum as a base - giving us not only a smooth sip but also complete control over the flavour profile.
The flavours used as the ‘spices’ are also unusual: we’ve opted for a fruity and floral route rather than the common spicing route of cloves, allspice, pepper and the like.
