Black Ven rum is hand crafted in small batches - approx. 200 bottles at a time. It is twice-distilled from 100% pure molasses here in Lyme Regis. The high quality of the water contributes to a fantastic drink.
Our multi award-winning dark rum is served at 50% abv - perfect for drinking neat, or with a single (small) cube of ice. It has wonderful notes of caramel, coffee & a touch of vanilla. We love it as the main ingredient in a "rude boy" cocktail too!
Our dark rum is not sweet like many spiced rums can be, so whisky & bourbon drinkers typically prefer our rum. You get a natural sweetness which comes through the distillation process and gets enhanced by the French oak we use but we don't add sweeteners or colours to the final product.
Our white rum is made from the same high quality molasses base as our dark rum. In fact, the process through to the first distillation is the same in both cases. The white rum differs during the "spirit run" where it is made "purer" than the dark rum and rests in stainless steel for a while at 40% abv. It doesn't require oaking. It's delicious in a simple Cuba Libre or perhaps a Dark & Stormy.
Our rums are stocked by high quality restaurants, hotels and specialist shops in the UK. You can also purchase online.
