Neptune Rum is created from pure sugar cane molasses in the oldest distillery in Barbados, a fourth generation family owned producer set on the southern slopes of the island. Neptune is both smooth pot and column stilled – before being aged in American bourbon oak casks for up to eight years. We are thrilled that the Neptune Rum team will be at the Cheltenham Food and Drink Festival this summer and spoke to them to find out more about their award winning rum and what we can expect from them at the Festival this year.
