Tasting notes:

Nose: rich and complex with notes of molasses, freshly baked cinnamon rolls and sweet orange.

Palate: deep and thick with mouth-watering flavours of treacle sponge cake and creamy vanilla, cut nicely with dried orange peel, winter spice and a warm rush of fiery ginger! 

Finish: the flavour hangs around till morning, sweet cinnamon and ginger linger on, with notes of coconut, vanilla and charred American oak to finish you off. 

The legend

Long ago, in the days of smugglers and pirates, there was a legend among the Cornish folk – the legend of the Crusty Juggler. In the pubs and inns across the county, sailors would tell tale of a man in rags atop the treacherous rocks of the coastline, juggling lengths of flaming driftwood with his salt-encrusted hands. Accounts varied but all agreed on one thing: once you saw the Juggler, you were hell-bound for the rocks! 

But despite what many thought, the Juggler wasn’t out for blood, nor was he interested in gold, what he craved lay in barrels deep in the belly of the ships that he wrecked: the finest rum slowly-aged, smuggled from the Caribbean.

Over the years, the stories faded into legend, the legend faded into myth. But among a select few the spirit of the Crusty Juggler lives on. Some say that even now, on a stormy night when the fog rolls in and conditions are just right, you can still see his flaming driftwood rising and falling in the dark, atop the jagged rocks…

For the adventurous…

The Crusty Juggler was born from the waves; forged by the wind, the rocks and the salt. Like the Juggler himself, the rum created in his honour is not for the faint of heart. Bold, exotic flavours are packed into every drop. 

The process starts with the finest Caribbean rum, rich molasses and deep Demerara sugar. When the base rum is ready, orange peel is added along with carefully-selected spices including ginger, cinnamon, clove and vanilla. Finally, the rum is transferred into ex-bourbon whiskey casks where it mellows and matures.

Crafted in small batches and bottled by hand, black spiced rum is finished with a wax seal and stamped with the mark of the Crusty Juggler as a sign of quality and provenance.
