Pirate’s Grog Spiced Rum

Pirate’s GrogI found myself drawn to this rum even before the first sip. Who can resist the humour, the sheer fun of a Pirate’s Grog Spiced Rum? Avast me hearties! (translation: Stop, dear chaps) is emblazoned on the back label, begging the reader to learn more about this award-winning spirit.

This rum was conceived in the jungle of Roatán 40 miles off the coast of Honduras. Pirates and buccaneers used the island for R&R between fights and plundering. Two visitors from England, Gareth and Beth, discovered a spirit which inspired them to make their own, with the support of ‘The Dutch Pirate’, Robert J. van der Weg.

Pirate’s Grog Spiced Rum is a delicious tapestry of salt, caramel, allspice and more from the region around Roatán. Its base is a well-crafted five-year-aged rum offering depth and richness. Its maturation takes place in American oak and bourbon barrels which add both character and flavour. The rum is then blended in small batches.

Tasting notes:

Appearance: clear amber
Nose: Vanilla, Christmas spice
Palate: Sweet, brown sugar, cinnamon, vanilla
Finish: medium, sweet vanilla

Pirate’s Grog Spiced Rum has great shelf appeal and would make the perfect gift for any rum lover or enthusiastic mixologist.  You don’t have to be a pirate to enjoy it, so stay safe and cosy at home and savour the sweet warming glow.
