Shakespeare Distillery has launched a second unique rum to accompany its newly launched white rum. Jester Spiced Rum is the result of a team effort from the independent artisan spirit producer in Stratford-upon-Avon. The team have distilled their 100% British-made white rum with Tudor-inspired fruits and spices.

As with the white rum, the name ‘Jester’ is taken from the sculpture which sits in Henley Street, yards from Shakespeare’s Birthplace. The rum epitomises the traits of Shakespearean jesters who were all bold, memorable and popular characters.

Shakespeare Distillery has been successfully distilling gin for the last five years on its own premises. Its products are inspired by the Tudor period, which is ingrained in the history of the town, being known worldwide as the birthplace of William Shakespeare.

Peter Monks, Director at Shakespeare Distillery says: “Having successfully launched our first Jester Rum in April, we’re delighted to launch our Spiced Rum which I am confident will be equally popular. I am incredibly proud of the team who have produced two fantastic Warwickshire Rums this year, especially after an exceedingly difficult 12 months. We’re looking forward to our customers and our retail and on-trade partners trying this new variety of premium British rum”.

The rum is available in three bottle options and retails at £34 for a 50cl bottle, £17.50 for a 20cl bottle and £6 for 5cl bottle. These can be purchased online, at the distillery shop or from No 1 High Street, Stratford-upon-Avon. Those interested in stocking the rum in their bar, restaurant, club or shop, or to arrange a tasting, request pricing and/or place an order please email
