Matugga Distillers unveils new artisan rum range

Liv Rum

Scottish micro-distillery Matugga Distillers is debuting its new Liv Rum collection, which features three rum variants and two flavoured rum liqueurs.

Inspired by the nation’s love for craft spirits and locally-made produce, Liv is handcrafted with natural and seasonal ingredients.

The new range includes two white rums – Pot Distilled White Rum (42.5% ABV) and Navy Strength White Rum (57.5% ABV) – as well as Black Spiced Rum (40% ABV), infused with Scottish heather.

The artisan collection also includes two flavoured liqueurs – Raspberry & Hibiscus Rum Liqueur, made using seasonal hand-picked raspberries, and Honey & Lavender Rum Liqueur, created using Scottish honey and locally-sourced lavender. Both variants have an ABV of 32%.

Head distiller Paul Rutasikwa said: “It’s been a roller coaster of a year for many of us. Getting our new range to this point, bottled and ready, has been a challenge but we’re proud to be able to unveil our innovative new collection.

“It’s a celebration of our love for craft rum, of Scotland’s nature, and the nation’s growing commitment to quality, local producers.

“Liv Rum is the next step in Matugga Distillers’ story – we wanted to create an accessible range of high quality rums that are of great value and showcase the diversity and flexibility of the spirit.”
