Halewood opens the Bristol & Bath Rum Distillery

Halewood has opened a bar, distillery and rum school in one of Bristol’s most prominent locations. In an iconic building on Park Street, Bristol & Bath Rum Distillery officially opened its doors on the 8th of October.

The 7,500 sq ft venue houses two large production stills. The first is a 500-litre double retort rum still, traditionally used by many Caribbean rum distillers, which will distil Dead Man’s Fingers Spiced Rum. The second is a 200-litre gin still. The Distillery is also home to a Rum School, where visitors can distil their own spiced rum in small copper stills, or they can visit the Distillery’s bar, which is believed to be one of just a few places in the UK to stock over 150 rums from over 50 different rum producing countries.
