Peanut Rum Cocktail Glass of Bubbly

It’s time to get nutty and insert a little flavour of peanuts into our cocktail, combining rum, Croatian Sparkling Wine, sweet spices and peanuts, let’s craft the Peanut Rum Cocktail!

The Sparkling Wine – Didin San

A Winery from the wonderful Sparkling Wine producing country of Croatia, with a vast and delicious history, Croatian Sparkling Wines aren’t often experienced outside of the country, they even say that the best Croatian Sparkling Wines never leave the country, well, it seems that this little gem slipped out and made its way to the Glass of Bubbly Awards, taking home a Silver Medal, produced in the Traditional Method, this Sparkling Wine is well worth a taste.

Rum – Ninefold Distillery

It took a year of careful planning for Ninefold Distillery to form, in 2018 the work officially began, converting two of their old cattle byres, that were originally used to milk cattle on the home farm.

Ninefold Distillery is nestled within Dormont Home Farm at the heart of Dormont Estate, Dumfries & Galloway. In a quiet rural setting in southwest Scotland, it took a few months to install their Scottish hand built copper hybrid pot still and obtain licenses, but in the spring of 2019, they started working on their first batches.
