• Image of Hopkins Rum - 50cl - 40%

A golden rum with warm caramel notes and hints of fragrant spices. We use a relatively high proportion of molasses to cane sugar and then sit the spirit at 55% ABV on bourbon chunks in steel casks after using our unique aging system of ultrasound, heat and forced aeration.

Stephen Hopkins was the Governor of Rhode Island when the British introduced various Acts in the 1760's aimed at taxing the colonies for all manner of things, including sugar. This was one of several factors that led to the United States declaring independence in 1776.

Hopkins, an ancestor of mine, signed the Declaration of Independence and is quoted as saying 'my hand trembles, but my heart does not'. It is also said that he was partial to a rum or two of an evening!
