Today is rum’s time to shine and what better way to celebrate a day dedicated to a beverage with such an eventful past, than by mixing it up into a tasty cocktail in a Rumbler. We asked a handful of rum brands to recommend a rum cocktail perfect for their offering, so channel your inner pirate and toast to a day of rum!
RUM & TONIC
Why not mix it up and try this suggestion from The Rum Club? Try a simple rum and tonic, which is exquisite when made using Botran 6-year-old white, which has been charcoal filtered.
The Rum Club are good friends of ours too! We teamed up with them to produce a speciality tumbler, just for rum, The Rumbler. Featuring a wide rim, rum-lovers will enjoy the rich, deep aromas. Not only that but every purchase of the Rumbler includes an exclusive FREE membership offer to The Rum Club - allowing you the chance to better explore the world of fine rums.
A classic rum cocktail packed with flavour, a Dark & Stormy is the perfect serving suggestion for Premium Harrogate Rum. Made from the grounds of the beautiful Ripley Castle Estate, Harrogate Premium spiced rum is made using Harrogate Spring Water and the locally-sourced wildflower honey adds a real sweetness to the blend, which even further enhances a dark and stormy.

Introduce a fruity kick to your rum cocktail with this suggestion from Wester Rum, who’s namesake, Wester Sugar House Company was established in 1667 in Glasgow. This craft rum is distilled using copper pot stills and infused with citrus zests, spices and vanilla.
50ml Wester Spirits rum
Fresh Grapefruit Juice
COLA BOTTLE DAIQUIRI
A tasty way to get the best from Old J Gold Rum, a brand that has been created in honour of Admiral Edward Vernon (also known as Old Grog) who suggested the addition of limes and sugar to the British Navy’s rum ration when he enforced a reduction in strength in 1740. Old J brings this concept into the 21st century by using blends of spices, sugar, vanilla and Persian lime. Old J Gold Rum has been aged in oak for 12 – 24 months. Offering a rich, sweet flavour with a taste of vanilla, there’s no doubt that this cocktail will tickle your taste buds.
