Salcombe Island Street Golden Spiced Rum 50cl
Famous for carrying fresh fruits and spices back from exotic lands, the locally built 19th century Salcombe Fruiters often ventured to the West Indies to acquire a much sweeter and more potent payload; sugar, molasses and rum.
In the tropical Caribbean heat, puncheons or hogsheads of this rich spirit were carefully stowed on board these ships. Then surrounded by coconuts to protect the precious cargo during their perilous journey back across the Atlantic.
Salcombe Rum ‘Island Street’ is a transatlantic spiced gold rum crafted by Salcombe Distilling Co. by blending single estate gold rum produced in Salcombe with exotic rums and spices from the Caribbean.
Crafted by blending a single estate gold rum that is fermented, distilled and aged in Salcombe, together with hand sourced gold rums from Jamaica and the Dominican Republic along with a unique blend of spices. Crafted by Salcombe Distilling Co. at their waterside distillery, one of the world’s only distilleries accessible by boat.
Drawing influence from the famous 19th century Salcombe Fruit Schooners and their precious cargo, ‘Island Street’ is inspired by the Salcombe Fruiters and intrepid sailors who risked all in pursuit of their cargoes of highly prized pineapples and exotic spices.
