Gin, craft beer and cocktails have all had their time, now make way for the rum revolution! Duppy Share is leading the way with their balanced blend of fiery Jamaican and smooth Barbadian rums. Tropical fruit flavours up front are followed by a buttery finish, combining to create a vibrant, accessible and versatile rum.
The Duppy Share, the UK’s fastest growing rum brand, is named after ‘Duppies’, the mischievous, rum-loving Caribbean spirits that swoop between the distilleries stealing the best of the rum. The combination of rums they steal is called The Duppy Share, and Duppies take this to fuel the most epic of parties.
The brand kindly invited off the cuff / ldn as their plus one to this summer’s Taste of London. I’m going to openly admit that in my ignorance I expected to be attending a mini food market, but mini it was not! This food and drink lover’s delight spanned a large area of Regent’s park and was host to amazing vendors, big and small, of all cuisines.
We found Duppy Share right at the centre among other brilliant beverage brands and by a live music stage – perfect! It was love at first sight with their warm, exotic logo covering the back wall of the stand; amazingly branded bottles and tees lining the wall and superb staff stood welcoming visitors.
For the rum connoisseurs among you that know the craft; Duppy Share specifically consists of a bold 3-year-old, 100% pot still Jamaican Rum (Worthy Park) packed with fruity flavours, accompanied by a smooth 5-year-old Barbadian rum (Foursquare Distillery), giving a warm, buttery finish.
Something that has to be mentioned is their cocktails on tap – literally a dream come true! We had the opportunity to try the exotic mixes which were life changing. The delectable recipes are in your hand no longer than a minute after ordering. You can enjoy The Duppy Share on tap at Pergola, The Prince, or in Youngs pubs across London. The Duppy Share is also available in leading bars and restaurants across the UK, including Everyman, Brewdog, Cosy Club and Drafthouse outlets – so get yourself there!
As well as the range of establishments listed above, and leading retailers from Sainsbury’s to Harvey Nichols, you can of course purchase the rum alongside merchandise on the brand’s website – www.theduppyshare.com.
To make your rum extra special, you can even personalise the bottle. Visit notonthehighstreet.com to spread the rum love. Duppy Share generously gifted our founder a “Simon Share” bottle, and we love it!
Whilst at the exhibition we also came across the perfect, zesty snack to accompany Duppy’s beverage: Good Fat’s Lime Mayo. Yes, Lime and mayo together (I was sceptical too, but it is ground breaking)!
Tantalising and tangy, the lime works alongside avocado and hi-ileic sunflower oil mayonnaise magnificently to make a magical, dip for your chip! www.goodfat.co.uk
Finally, we have to end with this ingenious quote from Duppy Share’s founder:
“The Duppy Share is about bringing the energy of the Caribbean to any occasion. It’s a brand for anyone who loves rum, but more importantly, anyone who loves to have fun – as we all know, time flies when you’re having rum.”
