For centuries, Reigate Heath was a wild and lawless place, where smuggling and highway robbery were rife. The stark outline of the gallows on Galley Hill, served as a reminder to convicted felons that justice would be served. Some say that rum smuggling on the Heath continues to this day.

Within sight of the old hanging hill, sits our brewery, the oldest independently owned craft brewery in London and the Southeast. Taking inspiration from our location, we’ve blended our beer with rum at the distilling stage, to produce a unique gold spiced rum, delivering an authentic taste of local history and all the drama of Galley Hill.

Tasting Notes:

Created using Progress Best Bitter and traditional molasses, this rum produces a vanilla, caramel aroma with a burnt chocolate after-note. The malts deliver a smoothness of character together with butterscotch and biscuit after-tones.
