Rathlee’s Rum is column distilled in Latin America before arriving on the shores of Cornwall in charred white oak barrels, to be delicately blended with the purest Cornish water. Smooth on the palate with notes of tropical fruit, honey and vanilla, and a warm peppery-spice finish. We recommend Rathlee’s Rum straight over ice to experience the spirit’s purity of flavour.
Two people, two cultures, a melting-pot of experience, and a single shared dedication to craft are the foundations of Rathlee Distilling Company. Paola, from the vibrant, beating heart of Bogotá, Colombia, and Stuart, from the wild, rugged coasts of Cornwall, began by crafting a rum that blends Latin spirit and Cornish endeavour – a unique fusion of cultures and flavours in pursuit of perfection.
"I've been increasingly impressed with the way that Rathlee Distilling Co. has developed their Rum. Starting with a clean crisp spirit, allowing sufficient time to develop a balanced maturity, they are presenting a versatile sip, that will never offend."
“I was introduced to Rathlee’s Rum last year at Port Eliot – there I fell in love with the rum and the fact that a little bit of exotic Colombia has been brought to the wilds of Cornwall!”
"Paola and Stuart have something special on their hands and in our glasses!"
"Rathlee’s Rum delivers smooth, fruity, honey and vanilla oak notes, an exquisite palate."
