Dark Rum Spirit Drink
The Isle of Man is rich in romantic fables such as The Peggy of Castletown. Built in 1789 and hidden in a boathouse, her apocryphal tales of rum smuggling promoted us to embark on our own adventure of distilling a rum that captured the vivid legend behind one of the Isle of Man’s most intriguing tales.
Our rum’s heritage is as rich as its flavour: dark and rich chocolate, molasses, and coffee infused with oak, caramel, and a hint of liquorice and marzipan on the finish give Peggy dark rum a palate as unique as her story.
Our master distillers have hand-picked the finest ingredients to produce a rum as exceptional in flavour as it is in heritage.
Dark chocolate and molasses infused with oak, rich caramel, and a hint of liquorice and marzipan on the finish give Peggy dark rum a palate as unique as her story. A splash of cold brew coffee is then added for distinctive character.
Our rum portfolio is the culmination of 10 months’ hard work, refined by our award-winning distiller and produced exclusively for Far Shore Merchants.
Our Peggy dark rum undergoes two distillation stages, the first being a stripping run to collect the low wines, followed by a pot still run for a more flavoursome result at around 70% abv. This is then diluted with Cornish spring water to 60% before being aged on a combination of French and American medium-to-high-char oak chips for up to three months.
We then proof to 40% abv before sweetening it with raw cane sugar and blending with our in-house cold brew coffee.
