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 has been incredible.
Our 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 bottles are hand-dipped in wax and our label has been 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. 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
