Named after an infamous pirate and distilled on a remote island…what more could you want from a rum!
J. Gow Rum takes its name from the notorious pirate John Gow. Born in Orkney, his short and violent career began in Amsterdam and took him around the world…always one step ahead of the authorities. Although, he was caught in the end, and was imprisoned, tried and hung – not once, but twice (after the rope snapped the first time) at London’s execution dock on the 11th of June 1725.
Orkney itself, is known for its rough seas and rugged coastline; and the J. Gow distillery sits metres from the sea on Lamb Holm – it may well be the smallest rum producing island in the world.
This Pot Still style Spiced Rum with caramel and natural spices from around the world including two secret ingredients grown in Orkney.
Enjoy straight, on the rocks, with mixer or in a cocktail.
Coffee, cocoa beans, vanilla, mango, dark chocolate and melted butter
