Rich laced notes of cloves and oak mouth-filling velvety finish are noticeable in this Welsh rum. 

Spirit of Wales Distillery initially launched their Welsh Rum under their distillery release brand. After selling out and getting excellent reviews, they kept it as part of their Steeltown Range. Included in this range is the recently launched Steeltown Blueberry Gin to complement their award-winning Steeltown Welsh Dry Gin and Steeltown Welsh Vodka. Besides the distillery’s contemporary range of premium spirits, the distillery has crafted a range of curiosity spirits that feature under the Dragon’s Breath range. 


Daniel Dyer, founder, and distillery host commented,

“Our distillery released white rum was liked by customers around Wales. We were going for a light white rum, giving out the fruity tones of the Caribbean soil picked up by the sugar cane, keeping our process simple. I am delighted that we managed to achieve that and produce a real white rum with tropical fruity undertones”.


The perfect pairing for the Spirit of Wales Steeltown Welsh White Rum is with a Fever-Tree Madagascan Cola and a lime wedge, or create the perfect Mojito with a Welsh rum twist. Spirit of Wales Steeltown products are available directly from the distillery, at markets and gin festivals around Wales, and the online store www.spiritofwales.com
