The firm of William Cadenhead Ltd, Wine and Spirit Merchants, was founded in 1842 and is Scotland's oldest independent bottler. The company was in the ownership of the same family until taken over by J & A Mitchell & Co.Ltd in 1972, the proprietors of Springbank distillery. Today, Cadenhead is probably the only Company in the world that holds extensive stocks of old matured-in-oak Rum (though they're also legendary for bottling excellent single cask, cask-strength, non-chill-filtered whiskies). The company places particular emphasis on the individuality of each bottling and bottle only a single cask of Rum at one time.

A rare first for our spirits collection is this Brazilian rum hailing from the Epris distillery, a large scale and modern operation near São Paolo, where they also distill for Bacardi.

Column distilled, in Cadenhead's words expect "Very sweet, aniseed balls, shortcrust pastry and cloves, along with butterscotch and sweet chocolate. Palate: Treacle notes, molasses and then sweet fruity flavours such as mandarins and peaches. Finish: Dark chocolate, lots of liquorice intertwined with cranberries." Natural strength at a surprisingly modest 45.3% Alc./Vol.
