Sugar House Blood Tub Rum Vintage 2018

Sugar House Blood Tub Rum Vintage 2018 rum review by the fat rum pirateSugar House Blood Tub Rum Vintage 2018. I’ve seen a couple of reviews of this already. Now being anally retentive is not something I excel at.

However, I’ve deliberately added the “Vintage 2018” moniker to the review title because I suspect we will be seeing more iterations of “Blood Tub Rum” over the next few years. So I like to try and keep my review titles as relevant and as ordered as possible. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

J Gow Revenge Aged 3 Years

J Gow Revenge Aged 3 Years Rum Review by the fat rum pirateJ Gow Revenge Aged 3 Years. This is the third aged release from VS Distillers, who are based in the Orkney Islands, just off the North East coast of Bonny Scotland. VS Distillers refers to the man behind J Gow Rum Collin Van chayk. Clever eh?

I’ve previously reviewed Fading Light and Hidden Depths (Vol 1) so if you are unfamiliar with VS Distillers, you might want to read up on those expressions as well. J Gow also produce a Spiced Rum, which I have yet to review. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

SeaWolf Premium White Rum

SeaWolf Premium White Rum review by the fat rum pirateSeaWolf Premium White Rum. This rum has been around for a while. Indeed it claims to be the first white rum to be distilled in Scotland. I wonder who distilled the first dark rum? Answers on a postcard please……..

Joking aside the brand has been around since 2016. I was aware of the brand but never heard much about it. so as a result it passed me by. SeaWolf Premium White Rum has been created by Mike Aikman and Jason Scott, who are behind the Edinburgh bars Bramble, The Last Word and the Lucky Liquor Co. The duo are joined by Gavin Ferguson who is the co-founder of wine merchant Vino Wines. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

An Interview with Kit Carruthers – Ninefold Distillery

An Interview with Kit Carruthers - Ninefold Distillery by the fat rum pirateAn Interview with Kit Carruthers – Ninefold Distillery.

The Ninefold Distillery has only been active for just over a year. I have gotten to know Kit over the past year or so, through other Scottish Rum Producers such as Ross Bradley (Sugar House Rum) and Collin Van Schayk (J. Gow Rum).

Between them they are producing some of the best “home grown” rum in the British Isles. I have reviewed rum from all three of the above brands. I would heartily recommend reading over my reviews and perhaps picking up a bottle or two to try. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

Top CBD Spirits Spiced Rum

Top CBD Spirits Spiced Rum review by the fat rum pirate Top CBD Spirits Spiced Rum. Top Beverages Limited are a new company set up by entrepeneurs Nick Pullen and Saf Ali. They have released no fewer than nine products, as part of their brand’s Top Beverages launch.

This Spiced Rum is one of three rum expressions they have released. Now, I will be perfectly honest at this stage that I was extremely sceptical about CBD infused or Hemp rum. The other rums in the series are a White Rum and a Mocha Flavoured Rum. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating
