The company will launch three new rums that will be all made using a retort still and British molasses. The new expressions have been produced after months of research and experimentation and will feature the same contemporary branding as its flagship NB gin and vodka brands that were launched in late 2013. NB Gin is also increasing its production of its base Gin and Vodka because of an “overwhelming” demand from United Kingdom and other global markets.
“We anticipate rum in the future becoming more popular, particularly craft rum. “It is likely the number of rum bars across the world will also increase.” Vivienne Muir, CEO of NB Gin, says that the work on the distillery is “progressing well”. Mrs Muir outlined her plans at a meeting of East Lothian Council’s planning committee earlier this month, where they were granted permission to open a distillery at Halfland Barns, near North Berwick, which will be able to operate around the clock to meet international orders, she told the Courier: “We plan to launch two rums – a clear and a spiced rum. An official launch is expected in November, but Mrs Muir is hopeful the new spirit will continue the success of the brand, launched in 2013.
