Shakespeare Distillery has launched a second unique Rum to accompany their newly launched White Rum. ‘Jester Spiced Rum’, is the result of a great team effort from the independent artisan spirit producer in Stratford-upon-Avon. The team have distilled their 100% British-made White Rum with Tudor-inspired fruits and spices to create a complex and memorable spiced rum. Sweet mace and cinnamon, aromatic nutmeg and warming clove make for a light-bodied dry rum boasting fruity notes. Jester Spiced is a perfectly balanced rum, great mixed with premium ginger ale and a squeeze of lime. Or it can be enjoyed shaken up as a superb, spiced rum mojito.
As with the White Rum, the name ‘Jester’ is taken from the sculpture which sits in Henley Street, yards from Shakespeare’s Birthplace. The Rum epitomises the traits of Shakespearean jesters who were all bold, memorable, and popular characters.
Shakespeare Distillery have been successfully distilling Gin for the last five years on their own premises. Their products are inspired by the Tudor period, which is ingrained in the history of the town, being known worldwide as the birthplace of William Shakespeare.
