We started off experimenting in our home kitchen with a pressure cooker and some old central heating pipes - hardly glamorous, but our makeshift ‘still’ was a great way to test hundreds of different botanicals with water to see which worked together the best.
Having perfected our recipe, we invested in a custom-built still made to our exact specifications by the world’s oldest and most revered still-makers. A still that would be able to precisely replicate our tried and tested recipe. We then moved out of our kitchen and into a small unit in North Berwick to continue distilling our products.
Our golden rum is an incredible addition to the NB Distillery family of spirits.
The whole process from the fermentation of the raw molasses, to the distillation in our bespoke Jamaican style copper double retort still,through to blending and bottling is carried out by us, in our custom built distillery in North Berwick. The double copper retorts of the still give the rum its full body and intense fruit notes.
As business has expanded with admirers from near and far, we now operate production and luxury experience tours from our purpose build, eco-friendly distillery which is based on the outskirts of our town.
Our visitors are welcomed to an environment of learning, sampling and relaxation. Slippers provided on arrival, we encourage you to relax and enjoy your time with us. You will get the chance to sample all of our world class spirits and we will also provide you with a drink of your choice. The selection of canapés included are made by local chefs, and even include some NB infused foods.
