The Môr-Ladron Story

What started as a conversation between Dafydd Morris from Cheers Wine Merchants and Andrew Brooks from The Gower Gin company, has ended in our award-winning  Môr-Ladron rum which was launched at the end of May 2020.  We sold hundreds of bottles as pre-orders and the response was incredible. 

Our Golden rum is made with organic and Fair Trade Cuban molasses. We age the rum on Gower in reclaimed whisky barrels which have the perfect level of char to give Môr-Ladron its unique taste.  We then spice the rum with foraged gorse from Gower, vanilla, orange and a special spice blend.

Our Honey Spiced rum is spiced with Welsh honey, crystallised ginger, orange blossom and vanilla.  Money from every bottle is donated to help Welsh bees. 

Our bottles are hand-dipped in wax.  Our original label was designed by the very talented tattoo artist, Henry Todd from Arcade Tattoos, Swansea.  The name Môr-Ladron means 'pirates'  in Welsh referring to the pirates who sailed the Welsh seas.

We were thrilled to win a Bronze award at the prestigious London Spirits Competition in 2020 for our original rum and a Gold medal in the International Wine and Spirits Competition in 2022 for our honey rum,. We are so proud of this achievement so early in our rum journey.

Why don't you join us on our pirate adventure?

Dafydd and Andrew
