Two new rums for Cornish distillers

After the continuing success of the award winning Kalkar coffee spirit, The Cornish Distilling Co is set to release two new genuine British rums this summer: White Rum and a Spiced Rum.

Based on the North Coast of Cornwall, The Cornish Distilling Co is one of a handful of distilleries in the UK that distills rum from scratch, with the team fermenting the sugarcane on-site. Having control over the fermentation, although time consuming, allows the team to have more control over the flavour of the rum.

Head Distiller, Tom Read, explains the distillery’s development and gives an insight in what to expect from the Spiced Rum:

“Over the past 18 months we have learnt to ferment and distill; fine tuning the production at every step. I’ve grabbed any spare moment to further refine the production and this is especially true for the spicing. The list of spices, fruits and herbs tested is endless and I’m really happy with the final recipe. Expect notes of lemongrass, cardamon, clove, cacao nib, apricot and saffron.”

With the growth of Spiced Rum predicted to outstrip the growth of Gin, The Cornish Distilling Co. are set to be at the forefront of this trend, producing high quality genuine British distilled rum.

“These are exciting times for the craft distilling market. We have spent a lot of time developing our Spiced rum. I hope the market likes it as much as we do,” added Richard Harding, Chairman of The Cornish Distilling Co.
