The Rum Academy

Rum Blending Experience

Enrol at our weekend Rum Academy as we take you on a journey through the history of rum and how we produce our own range of British rums from scratch at our distillery in Oxfordshire.

Students will discover the Master Blender within themselves, blending their own unique signature bottle of rum to take home using our collection of cask aged rums. As this academy is after hours, you’ll also get 3 rum cocktails throughout the evening.

This is a British rum first! Unlike any rum experience available in the UK, our distillery offers a diverse range of rum profiles to blend with. Our inventory includes rum aged in ex-bourbon, Islay, brandy, Moscatel, virgin oak varieties & sherry varieties.

Your unique rum recipe will even be kept on file at our distillery so you can order another bottle of your masterpiece in the future. The Rum Academy lasts approx 2hrs in total. Our booking calendar shows availability for the next 60 days ahead.

Copper Pot Distilled

We distil all our spirits the traditional way using our two copper pot stills. They play a huge part in producing our smooth & flavoursome award-winning spirits.

One Shot Method

All our gins are distilled using the ‘one shot’ method. Only purified water is added post distillation and we don't use concentrates, artificial colours or flavourings

Small Batch

We produce hand crafted spirits with the utmost quality. Our batches are no more than 130 bottles so we can keep total control on production quality levels.
