Hensol Castle Rum, the latest addition to our House of Spirits

Located in the cellars of our 400-year-old, Grade-I listed Hensol Castle, Hensol Castle Distillery has been producing its own brand of award-winning gin since late 2021 and the distillery is now releasing its own brand of spiced rum under the Hensol Castle umbrella.

What makes our Spiced Rum different is that it’s made using the same process the distillery team use to make our award winning Hensol Castle gin range. Adopting the London Dry method of distillation A three-times distilled Caribbean base rum is distilled for a fourth time, along with vanilla, fresh lime, orange peel, spiced berries, cinnamon and nutmeg. The four-times distilled rum is then expertly blended with the purest welsh water for an unrivalled depth of flavour, creating a spirited concoction enriched with velvety dark chocolate, vanilla and luxurious caramel.

The range currently features two flavours: Hensol Castle Spiced Rum (40% ABV) and Hensol Castle Cherry Spiced Rum (38% ABV).

The Spiced Rum is currently available from ASDA in 31 stores nationwide, whereas Cherry Spiced is available exclusively from hensolcastledistillery.com.

Chris Leeke, Managing Director of www.hensolcastledistillery.com:

“We’ve seen huge success of our spirits within such a short space of time, considering we launched just over two years ago into the gin market. We’ve won many accolades and industry-leading awards such as Best in Wales for our wild strawbery and hibiscus gin and have seen our products listed in most major supermarkets around Wales.

 We’re thrilled that Hensol Castle Spiced Rum is now going to be found on the shelves of 31 Asda supermarkets and hope that rum lovers enjoy what we’ve created.”
