Passion Fruit Rum
We’ve developed quite a passion for the contents of this hot pink bottle…
This Passion Fruit 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. Layered over that comes tangy passion fruit. It delivers an intense hit of Rubicon, passion fruit ice cream, a little caramelised mango and drizzle of honey. There’s a very famous passion fruit Martini made with vanilla vodka and Champagne, although the name has become a bit passé these days, it remains utterly delicious, especially when made with Dead Man’s Fingers Passion Fruit Rum. But if you’re too woke for that, simply top it up with lemonade and a twist of lime, or alternatively mix it into a tropical Daiquiri or Mojito.
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.
