Whilst autumn may have you reaching for the mulled wine or a comforting Bailey’s by the fire, Duppy Share rum are ensuring you can keep with you a bit of summer warmth with a series of pop-up bar events from October to December. Named after Caribbean ghost, Duppy, who, as legend has it, used to take the best of the evaporated liquid from the barrels as the rum aged – known as the Duppy Share. Canny little thing. This playfulness is reflected in the mix of cocktails being […]

Their ingredients are really locally sourced too, none of this ‘sourced locally’ and then you find it just means it’s from England, not here, instead ingredients will come from the likes of Dagenham Community Farm and Kappacasein Dairy in Bermondsey. When ingredients do have to be sourced from abroad and that’s only 10% anyway, they’re […]
