The Portsmouth Distillery Vision
Although the principal driver for embarking on this project is rum, we are passionate about the artisan spirit movement and giving Portsmouth it’s own distillery and range of spirits for the first time in hundreds of years.
The founders have always had a real passion for rum, and through their years in the industry, selling and tasting this versatile and flavoursome spirit it seemed the natural thing to do to start producing it. Initially to fill an ever-growing gap in the market for fine quality small-batch artisan white rum, but with an eye to laying this down to age, playing the long game, to have world-class aged sipping rums in the future.
“…we are playing the long game, to create world-class aged sipping rums for the future”
That all said, we have also developed a world class Gin, to give Portsmouth it’s own Dry Gin for the first time in centuries. We are also developing several other products to be released later in 2018 and next year.
