New liqueur to lift the spirits


A new caramel rum liqueur has been launched by the English Spirit Distillery.

As with all the rums in the English Spirit collection, pure sugar cane molasses has been used as a base to achieve “richness and complexity”.

The molasses is fermented for at least two weeks before being double distilled in small batches, in copper alembic stills. The rum is co-distilled with oak, and blended with natural caramels and sugars, before being bottled at liqueur strength of 25% ABV.

English Spirit general manager, James Lawrence, said: “The vast increase in our direct online sales in recent months has been really encouraging, and has shown us that consumers are looking to support small businesses and buy high quality British products: and drink well at home.

“We’ve decided to release this liqueur to not only continue to drive the UK rum category forward, but also to provide a great idea for a Father’s Day present.”

English Spirit operates from two locations, in Essex and at Treguddick Manor, near Launceston.
