New rum for Deeside Distillery

A North-East distillery has launched an exciting new venture with the creation of the UK’s first single cask cask-strength rum.  Devil’s Point, developed by Deeside Distillery, is the first rum to be aged in a variation of experimental casks. This creates products with as much character and authenticity of a Caribbean rum as possible – but still being aligned to Scotch Whisky production. Brand ambassador Ryan Rhodes said, “The appetite for rum was really flagged up during one of our projects with Aberdeen bar Dusk who were using between 80-100 bottles of rum a week and wanted to create their own spirits in-house.  The ‘Dusk Distillation Project’ allowed us to develop a rum and after tasting it last year, we decided to create Devil’s Point as it was too good not to share.  “We tip our hat to our neighbours Dark Matter rum distillers, also based in Banchory, who were the ones to pave the way to make a Scottish rum. They first put casks down three years ago but have yet to bottle them.  With other local Distilleries looking at releasing rum we thought it was now time to launch our new experimental products we have been working on in secret!”
