After 2 years, we are delighted to announce the re-launch of our NB Full Bodied Rum. Expertly crafted at NB Distillery in partnership with Jamie MacDonald, Rum Distiller (@rumroyalty), Iain Bell and Steve Ross, MD and Master Distiller at NB Distillery. A new flavoursome and distinctive rum of exceptional quality.
This is an exciting time in our journey as we continue to produce world class spirits for you to enjoy, with this fine Scottish Rum sitting proudly alongside our gins. As well as our new NB Full Bodied Rum you can also enjoy our new NB Spiced Rum.
Description: Exceptional. Distinctive. Wonderfully Smooth.
A fine, pure blended rum, expertly crafted to a very high quality. Using the finest of ingredients, the base of which is Indian cane molasses. A clear white rum, with no additives, colouring or added sweetness. Filtered to be free of any impurities.
Distilled in small batches in our unique Caribbean style Double Retort Pot Still – custom made for us by John Dore & Co, the oldest and most revered rum still makers in the world. Our Rum still is a smaller replica of the rum still used to make Mount Gay Rum in Barbados. John Dore & Co also custom built our gin still "Gloria".
Nose: Deep, flavoursome nose with clean, fresh notes of soft tart fruits and distinctive notes of vanilla, unripened banana and green mango skin. “Like walking into a greengrocer – green leaves, soft fruits and herbs in the air”.
Taste: Light soft fruits, sugar cane and underlying hints of mint chocolate and light spearmint (think After Eight Mint or Fry’s Chocolate!).
Body / Finish: A balanced blend with a creamy, buttery mouthfeel. The depth is medium to long with a rounded finish that lingers on the lips.
Preferred serve: We recommend trying neat first and add 3-5 drops of water or ice to open up the wonderful flavours and aromas. Great with mixers such as tonic, ginger beer or apple juice and a touch of honey. Perfect for any rum cocktails – Daiquiri, Rum Punch, or why not try a twist on a NB Rum Negroni. Best enjoyed with friends, alfresco of course!
