Rebellion Rum joins proof drinks

Untitled-3

Rebellion rum has just joined Proof Drinks as part of their rapid expansion into the premium rum market.

Rebellion Rum is Trinidadian rum from a distillery founded in 1824. This is a rum deeply seeded in the history of Trinidad offering the true taste of the Caribbean.

Unlike more established brands, Rebellion is also bottled at a full strength 37.5% abv, allowing it to officially sit in the Rum category.

Rebellion Rum offers 3 exceptional rums in the range:
Rebellion Spiced – 37.5% – 70cl Bottle – Boasting countless awards and the figurehead of Rebellion, this rum has been created as a return to fuller tasting spiced rums. Inspired by traditional Caribbean spice routes where piracy was rife, Rebellion Spiced is made using whole spices instead of the flavourings and essences commonly used. This rum is excellent over ice or holds its own flavour beautifully in cocktails and with mixers.

Rebellion Blanco – 37.5% – 70cl Bottle – A light white rum packed with enough flavour to stand up to heavy cocktails and traditional mixers.

Rebellion Black Rum – 37.5% – 70cl Bottle – A rich and dark rum made for mixing. This rum holds enough flavour to shine through even the heaviest cocktails and mixers.

Proof drinks expand their spirit portfolio with Sloane’s Gin

Proof Drinks are proud to announce that they have won the marketing and distribution rights to Sloane’s Gin in the United Kingdom.

Company Comment
Proof Drinks sales director Luke Wade says, “ Sloane’s Gin is such a versatile spirit, I have been fascinated by the range of cocktails that people have created using this innovative spirit. For me though, nothing beats a Sloane’s G&T made with Fever Tree Tonic and a slice of Orange.” Proof Drinks is currently running nationwide Gin tasting and Master classes to showcase Sloane’s unique and distinctive taste.

About Sloane’s
Created by blending ten separately distilled botanical distillates, Sloane’s Gin combines elements of citrus, juniper and an array of other supporting herbs and spices into a balanced and well-mannered gin. At 40% ABV, Sloane’s Gin mixes perfectly in a G&T and offers plenty of the traditional gin flavours while not being too diluted or sharp.

Both the name and contents for Sloane’s Gin were inspired by the exploits of Sir Hans Sloane (1660-1753). Sir Hans Sloane was a Royal Physician, botanist, collector, lifelong benefactor and landlord of the Physic Garden Chelsea, one of the UK’s foremost institutions for growing and experimenting in the use of plants and plant extracts for medicinal purposes.

The personal botanical collection he amassed during his lifetime was bequeathed to the nation upon his death and later formed the foundation of the British and Natural History Museum collections.

With only the ‘heart’ of the distillate being used to extract the purest flavour. Juniper, angelica, cassia bark, cardamom pods, coriander seeds, iris root, lemon, orange, liquorice root and vanilla pod are all individually distilled. The botanicals are then carefully blended together one at a time, creating subtle layers of flavour.

Proof Drinks are proud to announce that they have won the rights to distribute Cazcabel Tequila in the United Kingdom. Cazcabel’s Tequila range currently consists of a Blanco Tequila as well as two flavour variants, Coffee and Honey.

About Cazcabel Tequila
Cazcabel Tequila is inspired by the mythical Mexican Curador, “Don Cazcabel”. A faithful student of Toltec, Olmec and Aztec traditions, Don Cazcabel’s work is all about taking natural ingredients from the land and giving them new meaning and life. His tonics date back to 1000BC and some say he’s a descendant of the original Mayan shaman.
