  • Bottling our award-winning New Town Mixed Spice Rum. Every bottle is carefully filled, sealed, and prepared with love and passion. From the finest ingredients to the expert hands that craft each bottle, we take pride in every step of the process. 

A contemporary take on the all-time classic spiced rum, but offering so much more than any bottle you’d get off any supermarket shelf. 

Cinnamon, ginger, orange, nutmeg & vanilla – all classic flavours just begging to be mixed into some incredible spiced cocktails, enjoyed neat or gently swirled into a mixer!

Versatile, smooth and just the right balance of delicate spice, it goes great with ginger beer, apple juice, cola, pineapple juice, or just great enjoyed on its own.

Get ready to savour the rich flavours and aromatic spices that make our rum truly exceptional. 

Cheers! 🥃🥃

  • Behind the scenes…our craft whisky production. This is our fermented ‘wort’ being emptied into the copper still, ready to be distilled to produce our Fyr Drenc (fire drink), and eventually our Solstice and Equinox Single Malt Whisky. 

There are 6 main stages involved in the production of our whisky: malting, mashing, fermentation, distillation, maturation and bottling.

We use four different malted barleys, each adding their unique properties to the flavour profile complexity. The ‘mash’ from these grains is made for us by our friends @romanwaybrewery. Mash is a solution of ground up barley and water, and is prepared to make grain starch so that it can be converted to sugar.

The liquid extracted from mash is called ‘wort’. We collect the wort still hot and allow it to cool to the perfect temp for pitching a special yeast to draw out even more flavour. Wort contains the sugars that will be fermented by the yeast to produce alcohol. It is then slowly fermented in ambient temps to maximise flavour before distillation begins...

  • “This has got to be the best tasting brandy that I have ever tasted." This very special limited-edition brandy is made using wine from the @chaforwine estate in Gawcott, near Bucks. We took a wine made from a blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes, triple distilled it, and then matured it in 55L ex-Madeira casks for 30 months before bottling. 

We thought it was all gone but we found a couple of sneaky ones hiding when doing our 2024 stock take... But it wasn’t about that, we just wanted to share the review because it was so nice. Thank you Craig if you are reading this.
