1968 Portsmouth White Rum

1968 Portsmouth White Rum review by the fat rum pirate1968 Portsmouth White Rum. Over the past few years a number of Rum Producers have sprung up in the UK. I’ve focused quite a bit on some of the offerings from Scotland and its outer isles.

Today I am at the other end of the UK down in Sunny Hampshire at the Portsmouth Distillery. The distillery is situated in Fort Cumberland on the South Eastern corner of Portsea Island on the shingle spit known as Eastney Point. It was built to control the entrance to Langstone Harbour to the east, and to improve the defences of Portsmouth Dockyard to the west. It now houses the Portsmouth Distillery and visitor centre.

That Boutique-y Rum Company Greensand Ridge Batch 1 Rum review by the fat rum pirateThat Boutique-y Rum Company Greensand Ridge Batch 1. Regular readers of the site should be familiar with The Boutique-y Rum Company by now. I have reviewed a number of their offerings over the past couple of years since the company was formed.

This offering from Greensand Ridge is part of the recently released “Home Nations Series”. Which celebrated the growing number of rums now being produced in the UK. It also focused on some whisky as well but we’re not interested in that. Not today anyway. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

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.
