Edmund Wood, owner and founder of Belgrove Spiced Rum grew up in the Lake District, in Cartmel, the home of sticky toffee pudding! He then came to London for uni and studied Physics. After uni he went into the food & drink industry and worked for Associated British Foods for 6 years. He had always loved the world of food & drink and had always wanted to start his own business – he just didn’t know what form it would take.
We found out how it all started and where he found inspiration for his new expression.
Edmund wanted to create a rum that complemented their 1st Expression building on a small range of flavours; one that was in keeping with the brand and lent itself to a whole different raft of delicious cocktails, After leafing through his flavour thesaurus and after months of trialing new combinations he arrived at spiced fig & blackberry. Rich and fruity, with gentle notes of honeycomb, raspberry & a hint of cinnamon, it was worthy of joining the Belgrove shelf.
The rum is made from 100% Demerara sugar cane grown in Guyana and is distilled at the famous Diamond Distillery using wooden pot & Coffey stills and is a blend of ages up to 12 years. The Demerara rum is imported into the UK and infused with real ingredients, all natural flavours – nothing artificial goes into the bottle.
