GLASGOW-BASED Wester Spirit Co. has launched a premium, full bodied, small batch spiced rum, using copper pot stills to achieve the rich, rounded mouthfeel enjoyed with every sip.

Craft distilled in Scotland, Wester Rum is a true celebration of the city’s storied past and reputation in refined sugar, and is one of the first rums to come out of Glasgow in 250 years.

Taking its name from the Wester Sugar House Company, established in Glasgow’s Candleriggs in 1667, Wester rum provides a quality, authentic drinking experience, with a nod to the penchant for the sugar-cane spirit and rich history of the city which it calls home.

Wester Spirit Co. utilises copper pot stills to impart the full-bodied flavour the rum has been recognised for. Deep mahogany in colour, the spirit is infused with the finest spices, hints of citrus zests and notes of vanilla to create a complex taste to be enjoyed over ice or with your mix of choice.

Zander Macgregor, Wester Spirit Co. co-founder, said: “A recipe developed over many months of research and experimentation, the final blend hosts the perfect balance between the full bodied flavour of the pot still rum and the warm Caribbean spices.

“A lot of personal time and energy is dedicated to ensure Wester rum is exceptional in taste as it is flavour, invigorating the premium rum category by appealing to passionate rum connoisseurs looking to discover a crafted spirit as rooted in its artisanal values as it is its identity.”

Scotland’s newest spirit is priced £35, available at
