Scran season 2: The expert's guide to Scottish rum - with Matugga Rum and Ninefold Distillery

Posted On: 3 Jul 2020   |   Posted By: Scotsman

On this episode of Scran, I find out more about the growing trend for distilling Scottish rum.
Often cited as the next big thing following on from Scottish gin, the production of rum has been steadily growing in Scotland over the last two to three years.
I am joined by Jacine Rutasikwa, co-founder of Matugga Rum in Livingston, and Kit Carruthers of Ninefold Distillery in Dumfries.
Kit and Jacine discuss why they decided to start making rum and how a rum can be Scottish, as well as giving advice for those looking to get into the industry.
Jacine and Kit also chat about their favourite rum drinks and the upcoming virtual Scottish Rum Festival .
Nick Nairn is also back with his cooking tip and I discuss my lockdown food and drink of choice.
