About Rathlee Distillery Co
Rathlee’s Revolver Rum combines the vibrant spirit of Latin America with the natural purity of Cornwall. It reflects the story of its two creators – Paola and Stuart Leather. Paola is originally from the wildly colourful city of Bogotá, Colombia, while Stuart is from a very different kind of wild environment – the tranquil, rugged beauty of Cornwall.
Despite their very different backgrounds they shared a fascination with spirits of the non-ethereal kind, especially rum. They decided to create their own, spending a year distilling small batches on their 20-litre still until they found the one they both loved and believed in. It’s a recipe that brings together the cultural influence of each of its creators. It’s distilled and aged in Latin America to give it a genuine flavour of the continent, before being blended with pure Cornish water, which provides its distinctive smoothness. The result is a golden, white oak barrel-aged rum with a taste all its own.
