The Old Fashioned is a classic cocktail traditionally made with Whiskey. But a robust aged rum like the Deep South Amber, with its subtle caramels and smoky finish, mimic the whiskey while adding warming undertones. Carefully prepared here in a leisurely classic understated, time-honoured way.
The Brass Monkey cocktail traditionally combines rum and orange.
Our Koperbobbejaan (copper baboon) steps up the game a little with a more complex mix of flavours and is a slightly ironic tribute to the troop of baboons that regularly try to raid our distillery, overturn our dustbins and play tag on the metal roof!
Supposedly attributable to a US Army caption stationed in Havana in the 1900s, who added lime and Coca-Cola to his rum and toasted his Cuban comrades by saying “Por Cuba Libre” – “to a free Cuba”, this drink has become a worldwide favourite. It needs a full-bodied rum to stand up to the sweet Coke – with the fresh lime adding an essential role in bridging the gap between tropical rum and effervescent, spicy-sweet Coke.
Our variation on the classic Dark ’n Stormy cocktail traditionally made with dark rum and ginger beer. A strong heady rum cocktail. The secret is a really good spicy ginger beer that complements caramel notes and smoky finish of the Amber Rum.
