A new Glasgow rum is launched – Banditti Club

The Glasgow Distillery Company has today announced the launch of Banditti Club – Glasgow Spiced Rum.

Banditti Club is the latest addition to Glasgow Distillery’s growing range of award-winning premium brands; deriving its name from a band of ardent spirits who would meet in Glasgow’s local public houses in the late 18th and early 19th century; singing, eating and playing music late into the night.

Matured and spiced in Glasgow, Banditti Club is made using rum distilled from freshly pressed sugar cane juice on the Island of Madeira. Aged for up to 12 months in oak casks, the rum is spiced with a selection of fresh tropical fruit and exotic spices, including pineapple, orange, cacao and allspice.

Natural sweetness and warm spice on the nose, Banditti Club opens up to toasted pineapple and orange on the palate with notes of clove and anise that lead to a long spicy finish. The result is a wonderfully smooth and rich spiced rum of exceptional quality, balance and distinction.

Mike Hayward, co-founder of The Glasgow Distillery Company said: ‘The city of Glasgow has a strong historical connection with rum and therefore it felt right that we bring our own brand to market.

‘We believe now is a perfect time to join the growing number of rums in the market, as consumers seek to further explore and discover new drinking experiences.

‘Banditti Club offers a premium, all-natural product with no added sugars or colourings which we believe stands up strongly alongside the best spiced rums currently available.’

Bottled at 44% ABV, Banditti Club Glasgow Spiced Rum is now available to purchase from the Glasgow Distillery website  priced £25.
