Paola and Stuart, married couple and co-founders of Rathlee Distilling Company, are Rum Explorers and proud of it! With our shared passion, in-depth knowledge of the industry, and roots in Colombia and Cornwall, creating a rum was the natural choice for us. As the first fully-licensed rum distillery in the South West (we think!) we trialled and agonised over scores of test batches using different sugars, yeasts, fermentation times and distillate characters until we had created one that we truly believed in.
Nowadays, Rathlee’s Rum is inspired by Paola’s intriguing, vivacious and effervescent home within Latin America, and the resulting authentic golden, barrel aged rum is blended with pure Cornish water to craft a spectacularly smooth flavour profile you’re going to love.
