Smooth and warming with a slight kick to the finish
Our nearest rum running island is only a short drive from our coastal location in Waterford, in the next-door county of Cork. Spike Island has an illustrious history of monks, military and prisons. With such a rich heritage it matched perfectly with our hedonistic blend of spiced rum. Let’s face it, Whiskey, Brandy, Gin and Vodka are all expected in the refined adult’s drinks cabinet, but rum is still an outsider. It conjures the beach, bare feet, sunshine and relaxation.
We source our rum from one of the finest distilleries in the Caribbean. From Barbados, once it lands on Irish soil we mix the cask strength golden liquid with soft Tipperary spring water to reduce it down to 40% ABV. We also add a special spice blend by hand that took us more than two years to create. The spices were chosen and then toasted, baked, beaten and combined in several ways before the final blend was approved. It’s largely a secret there are only five people in the world who know exactly what it is. Spike Island Spiced Rum is captivating, magically capturing the exotic in every sip.
