Revolver Rum

Revolver Rum Review by the fat rum pirateRevolver Rum is a new rum brand from the Rathlee Distilling Co. based in Cornwall on the South Coast of England.

It is a product of two rum lovers – one from Colombia and one from Cornwall.  The world Revolver in this instance, is not linked to pistols or guns.  It actually means in Spanish to “stir” which may give you an idea as to what direction this rum is heading in.  They also mention evolving on the label which is probably another nod to using the word revolver.

Alnwick Rum

Alnwick Rum Spirit of Northumberland review by the Fat rum pirateThe Legendary Alnwick Rum no less.  The Spirit of Northumberland it proclaims.  Not much of a proclamation to make really.   I can’t think of a drink other than Newcastle Brown Ale the North East has produced, which is famous beyond its own counties borders.
