As the sunshine has hidden away this May, we are feeling rather chilly. To get us warmed up we are heading over to Devon Rum Co for a well needed warming glass for this months ‘Creator of the month’. Their signature spiced rum comes packed with aromas of charred orange peel, caramel, cinnamon and hints of cardamom. And they have just launched a brand new honey rum, which has been a big hit with us in the vines. So who’s behind these delicious bottles?
Dave started Devon Rum Co in March 2020 (great timing!) and Giles joined in August to head up sales. Dave and Giles both love Devon, the outdoors and rum. So starting Devon Rum Co was inevitable.
Born from their love of the outdoors, Devon and most importantly Rum. Dave and Giles are passionate about creating a great product and running a business that cares about the environment. They set out to ensure that their products and ingredients are sourced ethically, that all packaging is acquired from sustainable sources wherever possible and critically, that they use no plastics and all packaging is 100% recyclable.
Dave and Giles craft artisan premium spiced Devon rum, created from a unique blend of exotic pot and column distilled rums from Jamaica and other previous British colonies. The rums are expertly blended in Devon and infused with aromatic spices, citrus zest and Devon spring water to create their distinctive character.
The rum begins life at 80% ABV in the Caribbean. Once aged the rum is blended with Devon spring water and their top-secret spice blend in the heart of Devon.
