Reverend Stiggins

Historical Tales of Flavoured Rum…  

FIRST USA TASTING: Tales of the Cocktail, Plantation Tasting Room: Sat, July 19, Bonnet Carre Room, Hotel Monteleone.
 
Press Release: In nineteenth-century England, a country that knew its spirits, one of the most prized was a thing called “pineapple rum,” a sipping spirit par excellence. Unfortunately, like many good things from the past, it eventually fell out of use and over the years its memory has faded - unless, of course, you’re a reader of Charles Dickens’ immortal Pickwick Papers, in which it features prominently as the favoured drink of the esteemed Reverend Stiggins.

The Duppy Share Rum

Just what is the Duppies Share?  

a) The Duppy Share is a blend of golden cask-aged rums from the islands of Jamaica and Barbados.

b) It is said that in the dead of night, when the distillers’ backs are turned, the dark duppy spirits journey between islands stealing a share of the rum left ageing in old oak barrels.  Spirit masters, and skilled in the fine art of blending, the duppies take only the best.
