Walter Hicks 125 Navy Rum hails from St Austell, Cornwall. Produced by St Austell Brewery who are perhaps better known for producing Tribute Cornish Pale Ale, Korev Cornish Lager alongside Bad Habit and Cardinal Syn real ales.
Products from the St Austell brewery are not only to be found in the South of England. The Nicholson pub chain operated by Mitchell and Butler stock a number of their ales and have exclusivity on a couple.
A 15 Year Old Port Mourant Rum from El Dorado released as part as their Rare Collection. The three rums in the Rare Collection were released simultaneously earlier this year.
It has been noted that the rums ages mirror three of El Dorado’s “Premium” rums. 12, 15 and 21 years old. I’m not sure whether it is entirely deliberate, nor am I totally sure if the stills used reflect the dominant rums used in each of El Dorado’s regular expressions. A spreadsheet of rums used in El Dorado rums was published a while back but has since been questioned. To be honest all are blends anyway so its academic really.
Both Kill Devil and rum from Guyana make regular appearances on these pages. Up until now, not both in the same article. Here we have another in the excellent line up of Single Cask rums from Hunter Laing’s rum offshoot.
Kill Devil Guyana is limited to only 276 bottles worldwide. A 70cl bottle with a 46% ABV will set you back around £60.
Bristol Classic Rum are perhaps more famous for their red labelled Port Mo(u)rants. This 1988 Enmore Still bottling seems to have flown under the radar. It has not attracted anywhere near as much attention.
As this Enmore Still rum was distilled in 1988. It is likely that it was actually produced on the old Enmore Distillery site rather than Demerara Distiiilers Limited (DDL). The record books tell me that Enmore Distillery did not cease production completely, until 1993.
East London Liquor Co. Ltd (ELLC) is a vodka and gin distillery. Based in London’s East End, Bow Wharf to be exact.
They also import spirits – such as this Demerara rum from Demerara Distillers Limited (DDL). The vodka and gin distillery is complemented by a bar and they also have an online store. Here you can buy both their own range and other spirits.
A 2005 Guyana vintage from Plantation distilled on the iconic Port Mourant pot still.
Plantation rum should be familiar to most readers. They are not shy when it comes to promoting themselves. Their Stiggins’ Fancy Pineapple Infused Rum, has been virtually impossible to ignore over the past couple of years.
Iceberg is a rum which hails from Canada. Well the brand does anyway, unsurprisingly the actual rum in the bottle is not Canadian.
It is in fact a Demerara rum which is blended with “12,000 year old Iceberg water”. Yeah okay anything you say! It is bottled by the Canadian Iceberg Vodka Company. It has made its way into my home here in the UK via Vikingstad in Norway where AST import it from Canada.
