Craft Your Own Rum with Cocktails at Devon Rum School. 

Uniquely situated, your rum extravaganza will take place within a classic American school bus.

You’ll be greeted with a rum punch cocktail ready for the lead distiller to take you on a journey through the history of rum and the different ways it is made.
Of course, you’ll enjoy tasters as you learn to build a flavour profile from a variety of spices and other botanicals.
During the session, you’ll create your own 70cl bottle of rum, from designing the label right through to deciding when to cut the rum run.
You’ll also have the option to purchase some oak chips if you would like to mature the bottle.

Guided by our expert staff for £100 Friday, Saturday & Sundays. at 2pm. Take home your own handmade unique 70cl Labelled bottle of Rum.

The cost is per still available, for up to 2 people to share the experience per still.
