Silk Road Distillers launches ‘category first’ rum

Silk Road White Spiced Rum

London-based spirits company Silk Road Distillers claims to have created a new category of rum with the launch of a new White Spiced expression.

During the distillation process, the team created a blend of six vapour-infused botanicals with the aim to “transform the way we think of white rum”. This is said to create a “delicate, light and more refined alternative”.

Each batch of Silk Road White Spiced Rum (42% ABV) is produced in small quantities, bottled and labelled by hand. It is recommended mixed with tonic water.

Founder George Agate said: “Our drink was created out of the love we have for rum and our passion for the vibrant and beautiful cities along the Silk Road that we were fortunate enough to pass through on our world adventure. We now want to use this passion to spearhead a revolution in rum that is long overdue.”
