The Duppies are Caribbean spirits who steal Caribbean rum hopping from island to island, keeping the best for themselves.
The Duppy Share is named after this fairy story (or the story was made for the rum I’m not sure). It’s a twist on the Angel’s Share tale. I was initially pretty disinterested in trying this rum which was released just last year. I read the press release and gave a little groan. Rums blended from different sources don’t really grab my attention and I don’t tend to buy my rum based on fairy tales….. However, fair play to the team behind The Duppy Share they have certainly produced a very attractive website. Their marketing team is also doing something right because the rum is available in a number of premium Department Stores in the UK.
