      Description

      Aged Honey Rum

      This special edition Honey Rum is an exciting local collaboration with Arden Forest Honey.

      We take pride in crafting our Jester White Rum from scratch by fermenting British milled molasses and double distilling it into our smooth buttery spirit. To make our Honey Rum we’ve aged it for 3 years in an ex-industry Wild Turkey bourbon cask and blended it with an award-winning Warwickshire honey. The result is a wonderfully light and balanced rum with fruity notes and a smooth mouth feel.

      • Tasting Notes:
      • NOSE: Sweet honey and light citrus
      • MOUTH: Soft and fruity, rounded off with sweet oak and a silky texture
      • FINISH: Bright, fruity molasses and honey finish

              The Story:

              Why Jester?

              01/05

              After successfully distilling gin for five years, we wanted to try our hand at something new. With a deep passion for experimenting and quality spirits akin, we put our heads together to decide on our next distilling journey. Determined and unafraid of a challenge, we wanted to create something different, something bold. It was from this the notion Jester was born; a British rum distilled from scratch right here in Shakespeare’s County.

              We are lucky enough to share our picturesque hometown with the legacy of William Shakespeare. Our artisan distillery sits just two miles west of Henley Street, the very street on which Shakespeare was born and lived. At the head of Henley Street stands a sculpture of a jester; a tribute to Shakespeare’s work and the inspiration behind the name of our rum. Almost all of Shakespeare’s jesters were fond drinkers, and known as bold, memorable and popular characters – just like our rum!

                Ingredients:

                Quality British Ingredients

                02/05

                Did you know the majority of rum on sale in the UK has in fact been imported? Many British rum distillers opt to import their base spirit before simply spicing it themselves. Not us. Jester is made from scratch right here at Shakespeare Distillery. However, we understand why so many choose to import their base spirit. Producing rum isn’t easy work. It requires patience, experience and a palette for perfection.

                Unlike many large-scale rum producers who use sugar, we use British molasses. Molasses are a by-product of sugar production and yields a much greater flavour profile. As a small craft distillery where sustainability is important, using what many see as a 'waste' product fits with our ethos perfectly! Where we cannot compete with the big spirit producers in volume, we pride ourselves on the highest quality and exquisite flavour of our spirits.

                  Fermentation:

                  Molasses Fermentation

                  03/05

                  Gin gets it flavour from being distilled with botanicals whereas rum’s unique flavour and alcohol comes from fermentation. By importing their base rum, a distillery will have no control over the flavour of the fermentation. Our own fermentation is a 7-day process in which the unique combination of yeast, water and sugar creates both flavour and alcohol, bubbling away slowly in ‘Titania’, our large fermenter. Named after the queen of the fairies in A Midsummer Night’s Dream and a piece of craftsmanship in her own right, Titania has a capacity of 2000 litres and she allows us to constantly monitor PH levels, temperature and the specific gravity.

                  Come join us for a distillery tour to see her up close, where we will explain how she works in more detail.

                    Distillation:

                    Rum Distillation

                    04/05

                    Our Jester White Rum is distilled twice in our still, Ophelia, concentrating the flavours and alcohol. The first distillation is called a stripping run and it creates a spirit around 40-50%, known as the low wines. The second distillation is known as a spirit run, where we capture the finest hearts from the low wines, leaving us with the premium handcrafted British spirit we know and love as Jester.

                    As a team we wanted to create a really unique spiced rum. We distilled our Jester White Rum for a third time with a carefully chosen blend of fruits and spices. Our combination of classic rum flavours and Tudor inspired ingredients, including mace and mulberries, gives you a fun and complex rum. Introducing Jester Spiced!

                              Two years of experimentation led to the creation of our signature Stratford Dry Gin, which captures the flavours of herbs and flowers from the Tudor garden and combines with the boldness of juniper and sweetness of Mediterranean citrus. This award-winning (IWSC Silver Outstanding) London Dry gin stands out from the market as one of the few herbal style gins.
