Announcement by Philip Everett-Lyons, Founder of Hattiers Rum
We are excited to be able to share with you the news that the Hattiers Rum range is now available at Waitrose & Partners at over 100 stores across the UK. A huge thank you to all members of our team and beyond for the work that has gone into achieving this.
"The team and I will be celebrating Hattiers Rum listing with Waitrose & Partners for some time. When we established in 2017 our aim was to create the finest British blended rums from an ethical & transparent company, and aiming to see Hattiers on the shelves of store such as Waitrose that share our core values. To see this becoming a reality is truly exciting, especially after such a short period of time. It’s incredible to think people can now walk into a Waitrose & Partners store and pick up a bottle of Hattiers Rum."
"We are champions of real rum by challenging the misunderstood perception of rum. It is important to us that we source the finest barrel aged rums which are not spiced, sugared, or adulterated with extra colour to appear older. Every sourced rum is aged at the source distillery and benefits from ex-bourbon casks tropical maturation. Once the rum is blended, we marry our multi-award-winning rums with our local Dartmoor water. Naturally filtered by layer upon layer of ancient granite, the creamy Dartmoor water balances our base rums perfectly and adds to our signature creamy finish that you'll find in 'Egremont', ‘Eminence’ and ‘Resolute’"
All the very best
Philip, Hattiers Rum Founder.
The three rums stocked in Waitrose & Partners are: ‘Eminence’ - a blended aged white rum (£37.50, 42% ABV) which was awarded Gold at this year’s International Wine & Spirit Competition scoring an impressive 95 out of a possible 100; ‘Egremont’ - a Blended Aged Premium Reserve Rum (£40.00, 40% ABV); and ‘Resolute’ - a Blended Aged Navy Strength Rum (£52.00, 54.5% ABV).
