Lugger Rum is a small-batch characterful mix of rums from Guyana and Trinidad and Tobago. It is hand-blended in Devon with a carefully selected balance of nutmeg, orange peel, cloves and vanilla and aged in bourbon oak barrels. It’s a mature and warming rum, full of flavour without being too sweet.
Sazerac Rye Whiskey symbolizes the tradition and history of New Orleans. It was at the Sazerac Coffee House on Royal Street where local patrons were served toddies made with Rye Whiskey and Peychaud’s Bitters. The libation became known as the “Sazerac” and America’s first branded cocktail was born. This is the whiskey that started it all.
The recommended serving of Sazerac Rye is The Sazerac cocktail*.
