Dead Man’s Fingers Cornish Spiced Rum
Dead Man’s Fingers is a spiced rum created by the owners of Cornwall restaurant The Rum & Crab Shack. A blend of rums from Trinidad and Barbados that is aged for three years, this has notes of orange, nutmeg, vanilla and raisin.
Where a blended rum meets exotic spices to create a unique and distinctive flavour profile. Those familiar with Saffron cake will certainly find a hint of that alongside notes of Pedro Ximénez Ice cream. Next comes a whisper of creamy caramel followed by vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and of course, those subtly sweet undertones of orange. Some have even found notes of pineapple, dried raisins and a pinch of black pepper – but we think they’re just showing off.

Inside the Rum and Crab Shack, a famous seafood joint In St Ives, Cornwall; and feeling suitably liberated from the tyranny of convention, a spiced rum was born. We rejected crusty old tradition in favour of flavours new; unusual flavours like Cornish Saffron cake and Pedro Ximénez ice cream were encouraged to get all close and personal with nutmeg, vanilla and a hint of orange.
The result was a unique Spiced Rum that’s not only delicious sipped neat but also plays well with others – that subtle orange back-note making it a better mixer for a more diverse range of cocktails.
