Jackdaw Cave – The taste of adventure

There’s passion – and then there is perfection. Jackdaw Cave Spiced Rum is a product born out of both: a passion by Far Shore Merchants for developing outstanding artisan rums that bring something new to the marketplace, perfected by careful craftsmanship and precision distilling with the finest ingredients.

Inspired by an old smugglers’ cave hidden in a jagged cove on the rugged coast of the Isle of Man  – complete with a hole in the roof to lower illicit cargo into waiting boats below – Jackdaw Cave is a celebration of the romance, intrigue and excitement of the early days of rum trading.

It is this coastal hideout that inspired Jackdaw Cave spiced rum: warming notes of vanilla, orange, and caramel swirl amid the gentle flutter of nutmeg and cinnamon, followed by the cleanest of finishes with hints of coffee, ginger, and pepper.

The smugglers and jackdaws may have since vacated the cave, but you can taste the history in every sip of our spiced rum.

Distiller’s Notes

Jackdaw Cave follows a similar distillation process as our white rum Windsong, but instead of bringing it down to 40% ABV, it’s brought down to 60% ABV, where we spice it with notes of coffee, orange, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, cassia, and vanilla, and leave it to macerate for a few weeks, so the alcohol has time to extract all these flavours.

It is then sweetened with raw cane sugar before Cornish spring water drops the ABV to 37.5%.
