The Brixton Distillery Market Row Botanical Rum
The Brixton Distillery Company is a a community project, it is Brixton people coming together to support, inspire and create. The distillery’s suppliers are locals, the botanicals are sourced locally and the employees are local. A celebration of Afro Caribbean flavours, Market Row Botanical Rum is a rum with a Brixton twist distilled in the rafters above Market Row. This is a super-premium botanical rum, not a spiced rum, handcrafted in the heart of London and infused with flavours of the market. The team blends Jamaican, Bajan and Dominican aged pot still rums from five distilleries, reflecting the local Caribbean culture in Brixton. Then it’s infused with Kenyan black tea, Nigerian hibiscus, Grenadian Mace and red rose from Pakistan amongst others. They’re all ingredients sourced locally from the traders in Brixton Market. It is a spirit without added-sugar, with botanicals chosen specifically to complement one another. The botanicals are subtle on the nose and palate adding to the flavours instead of changing them. Smooth and warming with caramelised banana sweetness and a dry floral finish.
