CAPTAIN MORGAN ORIGINAL Blended to an age-old recipe, CAPTAIN MORGAN is the product of Caribbean sugar cane; its dark colour and rounded caramel and vanilla notes making it deliciously recognisable. After being triple distilled, Captain Morgan is matured in charred American oak barrels that help to create its distinctive dark qualities, rich layers of flavour and harmonious blend of clove and caramel notes.

THE KRAKEN THE KRAKEN is imported Black Rum from the Caribbean blended with spices. Named for the Sea Beast of myth and legend, The Kraken Rum is bold, rich, black and smooth. Kraken tastes great as a shot, on the rocks or with your favourite mixer.

OLD J SPICED RUM In 1740 Admiral Edward Vernon enforced a reduction in the strength of the British Navy´s rum ration. When his men complained, Vernon suggested the addition of limes and sugar to make the drink more enjoyable. “OLD J” has been created in honour of this unlikely mixologist who was known as “Old Grog”. “Old J” however brings Vernon ´s concept into the 21st Century by using the finest Caribbean Rum combined with it’s Secret Blend of Spices, Sugar, Vanilla and Persian Lime.


Brand info PUSSER’S PUSSER’S is the original Royal Navy rum, not just dark rum. Navy style rum by definition must contain rum drawn from pot stills in the region of the Demerera Valley, hence, the nickname of “the valley of the Navy rum”. There are only two production capacity wooden pot stills in the world and both are located in Guyana at the Diamond Distillery. Pusser’s Rum uses a large proportion of this pot still rum in its blend

RE’AL The new RE’AL line boasts favourites such as Blueberry, Mango, Peach, Strawberry and Raspberry, as well as more unusual flavours including Pumpkin, Ginger and Agave Nectar. The product benefits for Re’al Cocktail Ingredients are simple but compelling: • Flavourful • Mixable • Squeezable • Long-lasting

TIA MARIA The legend of TIA MARIA dates back to the mid-17th century, when a Spanish aristocrat fled the turmoil colonial war brought to Jamaica. Her maid saved one family treasure, a small jewellery box with black pearl earrings and an ancient manuscript with the recipe for a mysterious liqueur. The recipe was named after the courageous woman: Tia Maria. It was rediscovered in the 1950s by Dr. Kenneth Leigh Evans, who began to produce and market it. Still made to the original Caribbean recipe by Illva Saronno and distributed in over 60 countries, Tia Maria is a free eclectic spirit which fits effortlessly into a modern lifestyle.
