Award-Winning British Rum Finely Crafted to Perfection
While most UK rum distillers import rum from distant shores, Far Shore Merchants prefer not to cut corners. Our pursuit for the perfect British rum led us to form a strong partnership with The Cornish Distilling Company, who import the finest cane molasses to produce our rums from scratch.
Both Far Shore Merchants and The Cornish Distilling Company take a serious stance when it comes to creating products that are as sustainable as they are delicious. The entire distillery is powered by on-site wind turbines and we’re currently investigating whether we can recycle the heat from a neighbouring bakery to warm our warehouse.
Peggy Dark Rum
The original – and our first love. When we discovered the perfect blend for Peggy dark rum, we knew we were onto something special. Dark chocolate, molasses and coffee are infused with oak and rich caramel and finished off with a swirl of liquorice and marzipan.
The story of The Peggy of Castletown, an 18th-century schooner, was our inspiration. Rumours of her association with historic rum runs prompted us to embark on our own adventure to produce a drink worthy of the vivid legend behind one of the Isle of Man’s most captivating tales.
Windsong White Rum
The inspiration for our white rum brand is rooted in the rich romanticism of Manx folklore, particularly that of the Mermaid of Gob-ny-Ooyl, a fable of lost love, burgeoning obsessions, and wistful wind-borne songs.
A fruity, floral nose is followed by notes of lime, grass and white chocolate with a hint of apple on the finish; an ode to the fruit tree at the centre of the mermaid’s story.
Jackdaw Cave Spiced Rum
Smuggling has been well documented, but it’s the story of Jackdaw Cave – a smuggler’s hideout veiled in secrecy – that captured our imagination.
Warming notes of vanilla, orange and caramel; a gentle flutter of nutmeg and cinnamon; notes of coffee, ginger and pepper: though the smugglers and jackdaws may have vacated the cave, its history can be tasted in every sip of Jackdaw Cave spiced rum.
