Pot Still style dry Spiced Rum (less than 5g of sugar per litre) with caramel and natural spices from around the world including two secret ingredients grown in Orkney.
A light golden colour, with a smooth rounded sweetness. Subtle citrus notes with warm undertones of stem ginger. Flavours of soft moist ginger cake with oatmeal and cinnamon cookies, and a long warming spice finish. A prominent rum flavour complimented with spices, rather than an overload of spices masking any hint of rum.
It’s a spiced rum that can be sipped. Enjoy it straight or on the rocks. It works wonderfully well in cocktails, and the underplayed sweetness gives it great potential for mixed drinks.
We recommend serving over ice with a twist of orange peel. Or mix ginger beer, cloudy apple or cranberry juice. It also works incredibly well in an Old Fashioned.
Pure island Rum. Inspired by pirates, distilled beside the sea. Fermented, distilled, matured and bottled in Orkney, Scotland.
J. Gow rum takes its name from the infamous Orkney pirate John Gow. His short, violent career began in Amsterdam and ended in Orkney. He was imprisoned, tried and hung. Not once, but twice, (after the rope snapped the first time) at London’s execution dock on the 11th of June 1725. While the name conjures up images of pirates, it also creates imagery of the brutal seas and rugged coastlines surrounding Orkney. The distillery sits meters from the sea on Lamb Holm. It may well be one of the smallest rum producing islands in the world.
