One for the rum lovers out there. A delightful Rum Liqueur made using Rum distilled by the English Spirit Distillery. Kill Devil refers to its early name, granted in the Caribbean in the 1650s. Back then it was a liquor 'strong enough to kill the devil'. This liqueur, however, is a little more restrained!
Meet the Maker
Nestled in a small English village on the outskirts of Cambridge is Dr. Walters' small copper pot distillery. Himself a biochemistry graduate from Oxford, having worked in the drinks industry for many years the final straw was a radio talk show stating Eau De Vie production in England was impossible - he set out to prove that wrong! The English Spirit Distillery is the only distillery in England to produce its own Rum and is a tireless speciality of theirs!
Perfect neat with ice as an aperitif or an after dinner drink. Equally versatile in Rum cocktails.
In late 2014 the distillery relocated 10 miles away to a larger site to accommodate more stills. Dr. Walters believes that the 200 litre still is the secret to the quality of his spirit, allowing him to better cut the hearts from the heads and tails. Throughout every run, Dr. Walters retains only the hearts, discarding the heads and the tails to produce the highest quality spirit possible.
