A Yorkshire craft rum producer have launched their latest offering just in time for the summer season.
God’s Own Spirit who make premium rum from their micro distillery in South Milford near Selby have released Gold, the fourth drink in their collection.
The new tipple features their Yorkshire White Rum infused with the rich characteristics of pre-aged fire charred bourbon and whisky cask barrels. The oaking process teases out the rich legacy of flavours and aromas from previous barrel aging and curing and infuses the flavour into the rum to create a distinct flavour.
Gold will sit alongside the company’s other premium rums which include Spiced, Winter and Blushed flavours all made using natural ingredients and hand filtered in small batches since their launch in 2018.
Distilled using traditional methods in copper alembic pot stills, the process is recognised throughout the industry as the best and only way to ensure the retention of flavour and aroma locked within a quality rum spirit.
After distillation and oaking, a combination of carefully selected botanical spices or seasonal fruits and berry blends are used to create each rum and provide a depth and subtle complexity.
Joe Dunning, Director of God’s Own Spirit: “We always knew we had a fantastic rum product in our Yorkshire Gold, however we wanted to initially break into the market with our flavoured rum varieties. Now is the time to present our rum spirit in its simplest form, complemented by the subtleties we derive from the oaking process.
“We’ve sourced our barrel supply from Yorkshire’s very own Master Cooper and are proud to support craftmanship in any form when producing our products. Gold is the next edition to our rum range, however we are always experimenting with new ideas, innovation and have a desire to improve on what we have created so far.
“We’re looking forward to getting back to food festivals and events this summer including The Great Northern Food & Drink Festival at Scampton Hall, Malton over the August Bank Holiday weekend”.
God’s Own Spirit products are stocked in selected independent retail outlets, bars and restaurants throughout Yorkshire and available to buy online at www.godsownrum.co.uk
