53.2% Alc Vol. 70cl

Hidden Depths Volume 1 is our first limited-edition cask aged rum as well as the UK’s first 3 year old. With only around 250 bottles available for sale from October 9th. Each bottle will be hand numbered and presented in a bottle pouch featuring the label design.

It has been fermented, distilled and aged at the distillery on Lamb Holm, 2 metres above sea level, 50 metres from the sea. The cask was laid down on the 28th of September 2017 and will be bottled on the 29th of September 2020. At a strength of 53.2%. The cask was previously used for Orkney bere barley whisky, it was then used by the Orkney Wine Company before being rejuvenated and filled with rum. The rum is rich with flavours of caramel, toffee and oak, backed by subtle liquorice. It comes with chocolate orange notes on the palate and a slightly salted finish, befitting its coastal home.

“We’re delighted to have finally reached this stage. Aged rums – particularly 8 and 12-year olds – have always been our main goal.” Said Head Distiller, Collin Van Schayk,

“Knowing this is the first of its kind in the UK makes this release even more exciting and we can’t wait to hear what people think.”

The Label artwork also drawn by Head Distiller Collin was inspired by the conger eels that live in and around the Churchill barriers of Lamb Holm.

Hidden Depths Series

This is the first rum in the Hidden Depths series. We’re planning more single cask releases in this series, in the future. These will be the same base rum, only older. With the casks having been previously filled with different liqueurs and port style wines, which will result in very unique rums.

Pre-orders are open now and will be shipped from the 5th of October. Get your bottle here Priced at £59.99 53.2% Alc Vol. 70cl
