Dark Matter Rum Distillery

Scotland's only rum distillery and creator of the very delicious Dark Matter Spiced Rum. Located near Banchory.

Scotland is not known for rum - for probably a million good reasons, but that has not stopped the guys at Dark Matter from making the very first spiced up Dark Matter rum in Banchory in Aberdeenshire. This is a micro-distillery, but if you want to know what they are up to and how they go about it, then contact them to see if they will share some of the magic secrets of the craft. Cold day in Scotland goes perfectly with a warm rum. Yum!
