Alnwick Rum was first created in the early 1900s to appeal to seafaring Northumbrians, in keeping with the rich heritage of rum as a maritime tipple. It now enjoys popularity across a huge spectrum of discerning tastes and demand has continued to grow for its use as a beautifully complex sipping rum, as well as a base for a wide range of delicious cocktails. As ever it is produced to the secret requirements of The Alnwick Rum Company. It is a fine old blend of Jamaican and Guyanan rums, and unlike many dark rums of today it is a 43% alcohol by volume spirit, so dark in colour that despite having distinctive reddish hues it appears almost as black as its iconic label. We love it and we hope you do too. Visit our online shop today.
That rich dark liquor of Alnwick Rum is a blend of fine rums from Jamaica and Guyana aged in former bourbon and whisky barrels for up to three years. It is in a different league from its ubiquitous, mass market dark rum counterparts. With its distinctive, spicy, confectionary aroma it delivers satisfyingly robust notes of dried fruits and toffee and a delightfully long finish.
Alnwick Rum may be enjoyed on its own at body temperature as an after dinner digestif. Equally it is a delightful tincture over ice and it makes a superb cocktail base. With Fentiman’s non-alcoholic Ginger Beer, for example, it makes a Storm Force as formidable as anything Joseph Conrad might have experienced.
Whether you are looking for a gift or a well-deserved treat for yourself, Alnwick Rum is the perfect choice.
