Holyrood Distillery Launches Sherry Cask Edition Rum

In the heart of Edinburgh, Holyrood Distillery has unveiled a marvel in the world of spirits – the Sherry Cask Edition of its acclaimed Elizabeth Yard Rum. This new offering is a testament to the distillery’s commitment to crafting distinctive and premium rums, bridging the gap between traditional and contemporary tastes.

A Global Melange

The Sherry Cask Edition is an exemplar of Holyrood Distillery’s mission: to bring together rare and exceptional rums from around the world, finishing them in the finest wood to enhance their unique characteristics. This edition features a blend of single estate molasses rum from The Philippines, high ester pot still rum from Ghana, and aromatic cane juice rum from Vietnam. Each rum, selected for its superior quality and flavour profile, contributes to a blend that is then refined in sherry casks for an unrivalled depth and complexity.

A Symphony of Flavours

The rum entices with notes of foamy bananas, raisins, and red fruits, creating a luxurious experience whether savoured neat or as the cornerstone of a cocktail. This edition is a celebration of rich tropical notes, offering a warmth and luxury that stands out in any setting.

A Design That Tells a Story

Echoing the shape of traditional Navy Rum flagons, the bottle is adorned with a pattern inspired by the iconic dazzle camouflage. This design not only pays homage to the naval history of Royal Elizabeth Yard but also reflects the deep, warm sherry notes that define the rum. It’s a nod to the past, while the flavours within speak to a bold future.

The Elizabeth Rum Series

The Elizabeth Yard Rum series embodies Holyrood Distillery’s philosophy of marrying the care and tradition of Scotch whisky production with the vibrant world of rum. By aging their rums in a variety of casks, from Oloroso and PX Sherry to American oak, Holyrood ensures each spirit shines brightly, much like the Sherry Cask Edition.
