“The last bird home from the storm”

Petrel is a small batch botanical rum, fermented, distilled and barrelled on the Cornish coast. It is traditionally distilled with a modern twist of rosemary, maple and oak.

A rum dedicated to the wild Cornish coasts and their native seabird, the Petrel. Both Storm Petrels and Leach’s Petrels are small but incredibly resilient, staying out at sea in even the in even the worst of storms. The way they seemingly walk on water, endlessly scanning the waves for a hint of a fin darting below the surface; graceful and strong. Here’s to the most wonderful of companions.

Petrel Rum pairs well with fresh apple juice or simply on the rocks with a slice of ginger.

THE PROCESS

The first step in the process is the fermentation, where the yeast is mixed with sugar and molasses. Cane molasses have a strong, robust, bittersweet flavour and are extracted from the juice residues created when sugar cane is boiled. These residues are very dark in colour and contain trace minerals, as well as invert sugars and colours that make up the natural raw flavour and aroma of cane molasses.

They use a single pot distillation process in our traditional Portuguese copper still, which maintains the molasses rich flavour. Their 500 litre still is heated by an open flame.  They only use the hearts, which is the purest cut of the distillation process. This is what makes Petrel so smooth and pure. (It’s also what means you won’t have such a hangover).  They then add botanicals to the distillation, which when heated in the still release their essential oils creating a deep and well rounded flavour.

Next they filter the rum into an ex bourbon whiskey barrel and leave it to age for a minimum of a month. During this time we flavour the rum with maple and fresh rosemary. A flavour combination both sweet and woody in fragrance.

All their rum is bottled and labelled by hand at the distillery.
