Cape Cornwall Rum

Cape Cornwall Rum

In 1925, Harvey’s great great grandfather was surprised to discover bottles of alcohol mysteriously built into the walls of his farm cottage. Legend has it that to avoid high government taxes, rum and other goods were often smuggled into Cape Cornwall by boat and stored in a farm building known as “the Wink”. We now use that very same building to lovingly age, mix, spice and bottle our specialist rums. Jack Shannon & Harvey Thomas - Co-Founders of the #capecornwallrumcompany
