I know what is on the top of my list for places to visit some in the near future…hopefully! The Rum and Crab Shack, birthplace of the delicious Dead Man’s Fingers Rum! My kind of place, Good seafood and good rum.
While I could just talk about how tasty the menu looks, that’s not why I am here! It’s about those outside the box, living on the edge kind of rums, Dead Man’s Fingers. Born from the bowels of the Rum and Crab Shack, located in Cornwall, this rum throws “conventional” out of the window! I like that. While I am a big fan of a lot of rums out there, I really enjoy when something so off the wall comes around that has the great tastes to back that up. There have been too many times an unconventional or flashy product has come out, that once it passes your lips, you realise they spent all the money on the packaging and none on the liquid. I am happy to say that DMF does not fall into that category. They love their rum, and they made that show in their products. We are very happy to stock this range of rums!
There are plenty of different flavours to choose from that will liven up any drink, depending on your mood. All their rums are variations of the core Spiced Rum. A nice blend of Trinidadian and Bajan rums is the basis of this, but to curb the sweetness of traditional Caribbean rum a bit, they incorporated saffron cake. You are still getting those wonderful traditional flavours of rich vanilla and creamy caramel, along with the flavour full tang of pineapple and pepper.
Now sipping the different variations of the DMF goes down really well on a warm summer’s day, these shine in cocktails and other mixed drinks. They will add a kick to whatever drinks you have planned. The lineup includes, raspberry, hazelnut, lime, mango, pineapple, coffee, coconut, and hemp! So pretty much something for everyone. My favourite definitely has to be the Lime, makes for some intense mojitios! I am a big fan of lots of lime, so the more lime I’m happy. I also took a suggestion from them and mixed the lime rum with ginger beer…a new favourite drink for sure!!
We have the whole range online along with a selection of minis for you to try. Grab a bottle of your choosing and let us know what crazy concoctions you came up with!
