Cockspur Spices It Up! 

Cockspur SpicedTheFloatingRumShack.com has just been told that Cockspur rum has released its first new variant into the UK as the consumer demand for golden and spiced rums continue to grow.  Named Cockspur Spiced, the premium spirit drink enjoys the same coral filtration and beach front maturation as its parent brand but has been inspired by traditional Caribbean ingredients to create a subtle spiced taste.

…part 2 

Plantation 3 Stars White RumBy now all the beautiful people will have received their invites for the UK launch of 3 Stars – the fab new white rum from Plantation… It will be a star-studded event at Le Meriden, Piccadilly; all the A-lister’s rubbing shoulders with the great and the good of the drinks industry!

And like so many times before, TheFloatingRumShack.com will be trying to sneak in via the kitchens… a rouse we’ve employed with great success (the secret being that you don’t dress like head chef with fake moustache, you dress plainly and walk in with a box of cabbages), now it may have cost us a fortune in brassica but we did get a lot of free booze too…

But how does this help the honest rum loving punter like our dear reader?

The Bristol ConnectionSummer Sun makes me think of long refreshing rum based drinks!  Or pints of cider for that matter (old habits die hard) and it was whilst I was glancing at my (now empty) cider can, that thoughts ran to the Appleton Bartenders Challenge UK winner, Richard Tring from The Milk Thistle in Bristol who came up with a cocktail that contains cider syrup!  “Strange thing to think about” sez you, “not at all” sez I!

Award Winning… 

Cockspur 12 RumTheFloatingRumShack.com has been thinking about Cockspur rum of late – mostly because of the fab competition we are running through May and June in which you could win not only a bottle of Cockspur Five Star rum, but also a cricket bat signed by the touring Windies team.

But our eyes are also drawn to the bottle of Cockspur 12 on our Bajan rum shelf and because we’ve been enjoying it so much of late, I thought I might share some truly evocative details courtesy of our friends at Savvy Drinks…
