Honey rum, a delightful fusion of honey and rum, is a heavenly libation that captivates the senses with its rich flavour and enchanting aroma. Our delightful Honey Rum offers a unique and unforgettable taste experience that combines the sweetness of honey with the warmth and complexity of rum. In this blog post, we will delve into the world of honey rum, exploring its origins, production process, and the myriad of ways to enjoy this sweet nectar!

The Origins of Honey Rum...
The history of honey rum dates back centuries, with its roots intertwined in the realms of ancient civilisations. Various cultures, from the Caribbean to the Mediterranean, have indulged in honey-infused spirits throughout history. The combination of rum and honey creates a delightful balance that showcases the natural sweetness of honey while harmonising with the robust character of rum.

The Production Process...
Crafting honey rum is an art that requires careful attention to detail and a passion for excellence. The process typically begins by infusing high-quality rum with pure, natural honey. Our Honey comes direct from our wonderful friends over at Bee Special who have over 90 hives that are dotted in and around the South West of Cornwall. The choice of rum is crucial, as different types can lend unique flavours and characteristics to the final product. Once the rum and honey are combined, the mixture is left to age, allowing the flavours to meld together and develop complexity. The aging process can range from a few months to several years, depending on the desired flavour profile.

Tasting Notes and Flavour Profile...
Honey rum entices the palate with its luscious sweetness, offering a smooth and velvety texture that caresses the tongue. Every batch of honey can be different due to the location of the bees and the flowers that are blooming at that time. The rich, golden hue of the spirit is a visual treat, while the aroma carries delicate notes of floral honey, caramel, and spices. On the palate, one can expect a perfect marriage of sweet honey and the mellow warmth of rum, often accompanied by hints of vanilla, oak, and tropical fruits. The finish is long and lingering, leaving behind a pleasant sweetness that invites another sip.
