Depth Charge Spiced Rum Packs a Powerful Flavour

The tide is changing, and the rum scene is long overdue a shakeup – introducing Depth Charge!

Depth Charge Spiced Rum packs a big, powerful profile, having been made with a fantastic base of Caribbean rum, a selection of tasty spices and generous helpings of lime and mandarin at its core.

The name comes from an ancient seafaring tale, where there was once a formidable sailor who encountered a fierce, mythological sea monster which defeated him comprehensively! But then something appeared to challenge the monster – it was Depth Charge!

It’s a great story and you can enjoy your own Depth Charge served simply over ice with a good wedge of lime. It should pair brilliantly with all those classic rum mixers we all know and love! Depth Charges’ unique and powerful flavour profile is finished off with lashings of lime and mandarin.

Taking advantage of the increasing demand for spiced rum (sales up 35% between 2019-2020), Depth Charge is “Exploding with Flavour” – taking on the traditional spiced rum profile and dialling up the intensity.
