Rum lovers – you don’t want to miss this!
Come and join us here at Hotham’s Rum School for a rum experience you’ll never forget
Upon your arrival, we’ll greet you with a Hotham’s Spiced Rum cocktail. You’ll join a group of other rum lovers, in our purpose-built Distilling Room.
You’ll smell and taste amazing spices, and choose the ones you like best for your own spiced rum. Our distiller will advise you on the quantities required, and you’ll soon have a balanced recipe ready.
You’ll learn about the distillation process whilst you enjoy a rum cocktail and we’ll encourage you to taste your spice blend as it distils and your spices release their delicious flavours.
You even get to choose if you would like a white or dark rum!
We’ll talk to you about the history and characteristics of rum, and you’ll hear about the Hotham’s brand – our history, and a little about Lord Hotham himself. You’ll have plenty of time to try the very best rums, including our very own Hotham’s Spiced Rum.
Finally, you’ll bottle, name and label your unique spiced rum before wax dipping the stopper to seal the bottle, and finally stamping it with the Hotham’s seal of approval.
Don’t forget to take graduation photos before you leave Rum School!
You can also rest assured that once you’ve finished enjoying it, you can buy another bottle – just order online and our distiller will recreate your recipe and deliver a new bottle of your spiced rum, straight to your door.
Hotham’s Gin School and Distillery is located in Hepworth’s Arcade, in the Old Town of Hull. Gin lovers are able to visit the Distillery not only to buy bottles of Hotham’s Gin, but also to join in a unique experience day where they will learn about the history of gin, botanicals and the gin making process, finally distilling their own unique bottle of gin to take home.
