Enjoy Honey Rum Cocktails this World Rum Day!

Devon Honey Spiced Rum

By Quince Honey


Saturday 9th July 2022 is World Rum Day, and to celebrate we’ve teamed up with the guys at Devon Rum Co. to bring you three amazing rum cocktails that are sure to impress at any party!

Better yet, all three of these mouth-watering cocktails make the most of Devon Rum Co.’s Honey Spiced Rum – made using our very own wildflower honey.

This multi award-winning spirit is hand-crafted in the heart of Devon using a unique blend of Caribbean rums, soft Devon spring water, aromatic spices, and our silky-smooth Devon honey. The result is a lightly spiced rum that boasts floral undertones, with notes of cinnamon and fruity raisins. It finishes with the sweetness of our honey, as well as a twist of fresh lemon zest and a pinch of allspice.

Sounds delicious! But how should you drink it?

“The beauty of rum is that it’s a super versatile spirit,” said Brad Wicks – Head of Marketing for Devon Rum. “It can be enjoyed neat as a sipping rum, or on the rocks to take the edge off. It can be paired with lighter mixers – such as tonic waters, soda waters and lemonades – for a refreshingly easy serve. And, if you’re feeling adventurous, it can be mixed into some wicked cocktails!”
