We’ve died and gone to Daiquiri heaven…
This Lime Rum is a collaboration between Cornwall’s Dead Man’s Fingers and flavourphile Will Borrell, the creator of the much-loved Vestal Vodka. This dream team have worked their fingers to the bone to produce a series of punchy flavoured rums to die for.
The flavour here is an enhancement to what was already an exceptional rum. The base is an award-winning, two-year-old Caribbean rum, full of toasty notes, baked cake, roasted nuts, vanilla and clove-y spices. The lime flavour addition manifests with powerful fresh citrus, plenty of zest, a splash of Rose’s Lime Cordial and the richness of caramel. According to Will Borrell, lime is a “gamechanger in cocktails”. So, adding an intense hit of lime to your rum is going to change your cocktail game up a notch forever. There are very few rum-based cocktails that wouldn’t be turbocharged by using this.
We had imagined that a flagon of this rum was prized from the gripping skeletal claws of a drowned Cornish pirate lost to Davy Jones’ Locker. And that the owners of The Rum & Crab Shack in St Ives had painstakingly recreated the elixir between shifts of boiling and broiling seafaring fare. However, it may not have gone down quite that way. The name ‘Dead Man’s Fingers’ is also what those in-the-know call the feathery gills that are removed when dressing a crab. (Now we’re hungry as well as thirsty.) But whether this exceptional rum gets its name from dark magic and sinister skulduggery or simply a macabre culinary term, Dead Man’s Fingers deserves its cult following.
