The Core Range

Our exceptional 1812 3-year-aged rum has been aged in Bourbon casks for three years, less than 100m from the sea in Fort Cumberland. Crafted in the heart of an ancient monument, the rum itself makes history, as we become the first English Distillery to make from scratch & authentically age a Rum for three years!

Each bottling of 1812 is a single cask release: disgorged, diluted, filtered and bottled, thereby maintaining the 100% organic purity of the spirit.
  • Award Winning
    Our Spirits have won multiple awards, from 'Best Rum on the Rocks' to 'Best Spiced Rum'.
  • Local
    Based in Fort Cumberland, Eastney Point - we are Portsmouth's very own distillery.
  • Hand-Crafted
    All our gin, rum and cyder is carefully hand-crafted, creating delicious, one of a kind spirits.
