Cuckoo Sundowner Rum
Aged White Rum 38% VOL
Keeping with our tradition of making proper spirits, Cuckoo Sundowner Rum is made using a cracking combination of our home made Lancashire white rum, expertly blended with South American white rum. The best of both worlds! Aged for over six months in ex-bourbon whiskey barrels, our rum is then lightly infused with vanilla, cinnamon, clove, ginger and natural honey.
Aged Sundowner Rum.
With family roots in Brindle, Charles Herbert Lightoller, was the most senior surviving officer of the Titanic disaster. Following his heroic efforts that night, he went on to become a decorated naval war hero. Our rum is named after Charles’ private boat, Sundowner, a revamped steamboat in which he enjoyed family trips around Europe. The boat made the history books during WW2, when Lightoller bravely sailed her across the channel to assist in the evacuation of Dunkirk. Under heavy enemy fire, Lightoller expertly navigated Sundowner home, saving the lives of 130 British soldiers, despite the boat having an official capacity of just 21.
A warm and enticing aroma awaits from the rich blend of Lancashire and South American white rum aged in bourbon barrels, infused with vanilla, cinnamon, clove, ginger, and honey.
Notes of vanilla provide a smooth foundation, while cinnamon and clove add a subtle spiciness. The hint of ginger adds a refreshing zest, complemented by the natural sweetness of honey.
The finish is long and satisfying. It's smooth and velvety, inviting you to take another sip and enjoy the lingering aftertaste of this exceptional rum.
