A fantastic artisan distillery based at the fabulous 18th Century Fort Cumberland, on the far eastern point of Portsea Island, surrounded by the sea and centuries of naval history. Here we lovingly distil Fort Gin, using key botanicals that grow within the Fort - gorse flower, elderflower and sea radish - alongside twelve other hand selected botanicals. We are also making a UK first - a 1968 White Rum from sugar cane juice imported from Costa Rica, from which we create a sirop which we then ferment for four weeks before distilling it twice. The 1968 Rum is the basis for our world first - Cinnabar Spiced Rum, where instead of infusing the spices, we distil them, making for a unique fresher and more refined style of spirit which is neither overly sweet or cloying. You will also get the chance to be the first people in the world to try our Forum Garden Rum - something completely new to get the industry really talking.....and what a conversation it will be!
