O’Hara’s spiced rum is a blend of the finest three year and five year Guyanan rum along with a five year Trinidad and Tobago rum flavoured with a ground breaking fusion of cinnamon, lime, vanilla, spices and a devilish secret ingredient for an incredibly smooth drink.
Sheffield Dry Gin
Sheffield Dry Gin was the first gin to be distilled and bottled in Sheffield for over 100 years. Using traditional gin botanicals alongside fennel, cardamom and gentian root that lend the gin its dry herbaceous character. For balance, True North add a small amount of grapefruit, lemon peel, Sheffield Honey and Hendersons relish.
Sir Robin of Locksley
Artisan Gin, Sir Robin of Locksley is named after Yorkshire lad and Sheffield legend, Robin Hood. A multi-purpose gin that crosses the boundaries between a London Dry Style and an Old Tom. Full of delicate aromas and up-front juniper, Sir Robin of Locksley is perfect served with grapefruit to extend its lingering citrus finish.
A Taste of Independent Sheffield takes place on 21 – 22 September in Sheffield city centre.
