Cape Cornwall Spiced Rum 40% 70cl
Founded in 2019 by Harvey Thomas and long-time school friend Jack Shannon, Cape Cornwall is based at Bollowal Farm, just four miles North of Land's End. Harvey is the fifth generation of the Thomas family who have owned the farm since 1925 - and it was Harvey's great-great-grandfather who discovered bottles of alcohol were hidden within the walls of the farm buildings. Legend told of smugglers avoiding taxes by bringing bottles into the cape via boat, hiding them in a farm building known as 'The Wink'.
In an effort to diversify the farm operations - they have a herd of red ruby Devon cattle - Harvey and Jack decided to produce a small scale rum operation, rectifying spirit from the Caribbean and diluting with Cornish water.
The Spiced Rum features rums mainly from Barbados that have been infused with ingredients such as saffron, cinnamon, vanilla, nutmeg and sea salt. The end result is a rum that reminds me of a Crunchie bar with a little bit more oomph - almost as if the honeycomb and chocolate has been sprinkled with that same salt. It's a spiced rum on the sweeter end but there's enough of a bite from the salt and cinnamon to ensure it's not TOO sweet. It's a belter with cola, but also makes a fantastic Cable Car cocktail!
