  • Details

    Located just outside Bridlington on the East Coast of England, the Twisted Roots Distillery is the only producer of rum in East Yorkshire, and also one of the very few in the entire country actually making rum from scratch, as opposed to buying in spirit from the Caribbean.

    Piers Moat founded the small distillery in 2016 and uses dehydrated sugar cane juice from Mauritius along with extremely long fermentation periods with Champagne yeast. The pot still also runs for around 18 hours at a lower temperature, meaning dilution with water is minimal and flavour complexity is maximised.

    His Dark Rum was originally labelled as Spiced Rum, but Piers discovered that drinkers would more often describe it as a stright dark rum due to Piers not wanting to go overboard with the 'spiced' element. As a result, he rebranded as a 'Lightly Spiced' Dark Rum. This is the base of his latest creation, where he infuses the dark, molasses rich, treacle-y rum with honey from a nearby friend, who allows his bees to forage among fields of Yorkshire Bell Heather, producing a deep and fragrant honey.

    Piers has added a LOT of honey to the rum, wanting to fully emphasise the naturatl sweetness. The intensity of the base rum means this still isn't overbearingly sweet, and there's a lovely silky texture in the mouth to boot. It's absolutely delicious!
