50 shades of spiced rum - it's super versatile!

You probably already know that rum is a boozy beverage made from fermenting sugarcane juice or molasses. What's so great about it? Its versatility of course! With rum, the possibilities are practically endless. Mix it up with your favourite mixer, whether it's a classic coke or ginger beer. How about incorporating it into some pina coladas? For espresso martini fans, there's espresso martini rum! Bottom line? Rum is the perfect way to explore your taste buds and imagination.

But of course, we are not the only ones who share such passion for spicy mixology. There are tons of people out there who love a spicy cocktail. But let's be real - not all spiced rum is created equal. Unfortunately, some folks just don't get it right which is why rum sometimes gets a bad rep. But don't write it off just yet - when done well, spiced rum is seriously delicious.

We're transparent on our ingredients

Let's face it - not all companies are honest with their customers. Rather than using top-notch ingredients, they tend to cut corners by swapping them out with cheaper alternatives and covering up any mishaps or bad-quality batches with artificial additives. Sure, they may have a relatively good base product on their hands, but instead of investing in natural flavours and spices, they trick you by using artificial aromas in their flavoured rum, thinking you won’t know the difference.

The best spiced rums are built on honesty and natural ingredients. And that's exactly what we do. Our spiced rum production is based on the use of exclusively natural high-end ingredients. And no need to worry about it tasting like a sugary soda like some companies make it - we use just the right amount of spices to give you the perfect balance of flavour.

Our SLY DOG spiced rum stands for elegance and balance achieved by painstaking research, endless experimentation and collaborations with the best industry professionals, and it shows!

The best Caribbean spiced rum that was designed to win

Bruce and Louis Goddard-Watts, the masterminds behind this venture, were huge fans of spiced rum. But they knew that creating the best Caribbean rum would require some serious expertise. So, they teamed up with the best rum gurus and flavour geniuses in the industry. The result? A responsibly sourced, all-natural rum that will blow your mind (and your taste buds). This rum is so good, it's basically the superhero of spirits.

The brothers didn't just think their oak barrel spiced rum was amazing - industry pros quickly agreed! The shifty black bottle has received numerous prestigious awards in just the first year of its existence and continues to do so to this day, with the latest addition to the long list of accolades being the World’s Best Traditional Spiced Rum title at the 2023 World Rum Awards! The People's Choice Spirit Awards and Spirits Business Awards have also given it accolades. So, if it pleases us and the rum experts, it's going to blow your taste buds away!

We’d like to close off with a little interesting fact for the history (of alcohol) geeks out there. Spiced rum as a product did not exist on the market before the first-ever bottle of Captain Morgan spiced rum was released in 1984. With that being said, the story of this glorious drink is just beginning and we are more than eager to leave our mark on the drinks industry! Want to test spiced rum at home?
