Mainbrace Rum began its journey on a sunny day at The Ferry Boat Inn in Cornwall.
We had spent the day watching the gig rowers racing on the river and as one boat's crew celebrated their latest win with a tot of rum, we knew we wanted to bottle that moment of celebration and friendship.
As a family of varied tastes we wanted to create something that would fit perfectly into a refreshing long drink, a sophisticated cocktail or to be savoured neat.
We eventually settled on a unique blend of two distinct and never-before bottled styles to produce a smooth, perfectly balanced golden rum with no additives. This splicing of two rums got us thinking, and, knowing the old saying of “Splice the Mainbrace”, we thought it perfectly encapsulated the product and spirit of the rum.
With that, Mainbrace Rum was born and we are now excited to distill our very own Gin as well!
