The fire that burnt down our family farm was a tragedy, but without it we would never have been inspired to create the first ever UK made Smoked Rum. By using apple wood, from trees planted 30 years go in our farm orchard, we cold-smoke our rum on site. The smoke blends with the rich dark rum to create an intense yet smooth, smoky flavour, with hints of apple and burnt treacle.
We have some really exciting events lined up for the coming months! Here at BBR, we are so passionate about our rum so we love meeting like-minded people that we can share our enthusiasm for this tasty tipple with. We love seeing people taste our Smoked and Spiced rum for the first time so make sure you come along. The details are all below; you have no excuse!
With the rising interest in craft spirits, food pairings with popular tipples like gin- nicknamed ginstronomy- are making a name for themself. Now rum sales are reaching new heights, it’s high time food pairings with rum became more well-known. Rum and Sugar, a Canary Wharf based restaurant have been matching rum cocktails to their menu for years. So why not whip out your rum collection and host a rum themed dinner party with some of these magical food matches?
As our brand is inspired by the fire that burnt down our family farm, the memory of the fire is also reflected in the flavours of our rum. We’ve always been passionate about rum, but felt that the existing spiced rums on the market were universally sweetened with a vanilla base. While these are delicious, and there is absolutely a place for these, we wanted to provide that point of different by creating a truly spicy Spiced rum.
We all love a Rum cocktail - a Daiquiri, a Long Island Iced Tea, a Mojito - but sometimes there just isn’t the time to whip out the cocktail shaker or go down to your favourite bar. Our Burning Barn Rum is incredibly delicious by itself or with your favourite mixer. So let’s take a look at our top 6 mixers for rum.
Happy National Rum Day to all rum drinkers out there! We figured this would be a great day to launch our new blog and tell you more about all things Burning Barn Rum. We’re so proud of how far we’ve come in such a short space of time, and to celebrate this wonderful rum-filled day, we thought we’d take a look at all the different ways you can easily celebrate rum at home.
