August 16 is National Rum Day!

In honour of this we’ve created an amazing barrel age rum recipe for you try out.

But first, we want to know what your favourite rum cocktail is.

Now onto the recipe. This recipe is based on a 2L oak aging barrel.

Recipe: Barrel Aged 7 Year Itch


44 oz Bacardi Black (Infused with a tsp and a half of Chinese five spice for 12 hrs, then strain through a coffee filter and back in the bottle)

12 oz of Sweet Vermouth

12 oz of Aperol


Age the above ingredients in a barrel for a month.

To make a drink strain 3 oz into a mixing glass with ice and stir.

Strain into the rocks glass and serve with a large ice cube.

Garnish with a flamed orange peel.

This is a phase cocktail. It’s two cocktails in one, all you need to do is add Fever Tree ginger beer to mix things up and now you have a world class Dark & Stormy.
