It's almost that time of year again... but we don't mention the C word... not yet anyway, it's only October!! When our merry crew of pirates kind of morph into elves ready to produce, pack and deliver those all important presents so you can spoil your loved ones safe in the knowledge that you're sure to put a smile on their face this year! 

So in addition to our existing range of delicious rums and unique gifting options we've only gone and upgraded our sleigh to bring you even more delightful wonders. So if you can wait another second to find out what could be stuffed in your stocking this year, keep scrolling...

 

Grog Old Fashioned Barrel

One of the main staples on both our summer and winter cocktail menus is the Grog Old Fashioned, served as a short drink over ice this is one for the rum-lovers and connoisseurs. But what makes our Old Fashioned especially special is that it's barrel aged in a real oak barrel, so the longer you leave it, the tastier it gets! So as requested, we're now offering you the chance to own your very own Pirate's Grog branded barrel! This 2 litre barrel will be available to buy on it's own, with a bottle of rum or a 1 litre pouch of Grog Old Fashioned, so all you need to do is pour it in, sit back and relax... We recommend a 75ml serve poured in your best tumble over ice. Resulting in more than 13 serves per pouch, meaning no pirate will end up short of a grog or two! These will be available to pre-order from NEXT WEEK! Delivery towards the end of October. 

 

 

Black Ei8ht Gift Chest

Yes it's finally here, a truly bespoke chest design just for our dangerously delicious Black Ei8ht Coffee Rum. This handcrafted wooden chest includes a printed leather lid that features the award-winning label design and a gold bar of craft chocolate made by the fabulous team at Bullion Chocolate. But this is not just any bar of chocolate, this is a small batch crafted especially for Pirate's Grog Rum fans with cocao nibs soaked in Black Ei8ht which are then added to the bar to give a little rum crunch! Woah, yes we're as thrilled about this as you are!!

It was about time this beauty was provided a throne as the Black Ei8ht is the proud winner of the World Liqueur Awards, scooping four awards for taste and design as well as a Great Taste award! So if that's not enough to make you want to get your hands on one of these straight away, then maybe we should all walk the plank?!

This will be available exclusively on the Pirate's Grog website throughout November with or without a personalised scroll for approx £65. 

 

 

Spiced Rum 

Now, we know many of you are eagerly awaiting this product. If you were lucky enough to sample this revolutionary recipe this summer at one of our pop up events then you'll know exactly why everyone is so excited for this bottle of goodness! Using the Five Year as a base, this is a salty caramel infusion with allspice and our secret ingredient, found along the enchanting shores of Roatán, Honduras. Bottled at 37.5% you can expect the same smoothness delivered by the Five Year but with a new dimension of subtle sweetness a a tiny pinch of spice. 

With the new label in production as we speak (well, write/read) it won't be long until you can have this sitting in pride of place on your bar/top shelf/bedside table..? Available from November. RRP £32. 

 

 

Merch

Next month we're launching our new merchandise competition which will see talented designers, artists, tattooists and the like battle it out for the chance to win a years supply of rum. So if you know any budding creatives with an eye for edginess and the heart of a pirate send them a message in a bottle about our competition! The end result will be some awesome new t-shirts, hoodies and caps that will all be available to purchase via the website.
