What's new & where to find 'Harley House Distillery' this Festive Season!

Updated: Nov 28, 2023

What's new to Harley House Distillery?

Another exciting year has flown by and here we are again starting off the festive season with lots of wonderful events, tastings, and markets leading up to this Christmas.

We have a packed diary and we cannot wait to show you what we have to offer. We have new products too with three new Rums, which have been added to our 'Prohibition Rum' range, and also a Cherry Brandy Liqueur

The festive season is a great opportunity for you to explore and enjoy new rich and diverse flavours, and boy do we do flavour!

Firstly let us introduce to you our brand new limited batch Cherry Brandy Liqueuer. A unique bottle of the finest quality. This liqueur has been created using the finest Sussex cherries, fermented and distilled at our Sussex distillery. The spirit offers a delicate sharpness to compliment locally grown cherries' beautifully sweet and succulent flavours. Especially made for the festive season this is a limited batch so you had better get in quick. You really don't want to miss out on this special liqueur, made entirely at our distillery in Seaford, East Sussex.

You may or may not know that in the late summer of this year, Adam our Creative Distiller released three brand new botanical rums to add to our 'Prohibition Rum' range. Rum has had an amazing renaissance this year, and there is no better time to try for yourself our rums that are made from start to finish in Sussex.

We have three new exciting rums bursting with flavour.

Pineapple Rum, Golden Honey Rum and our Navy strength, Smugglers Cut Rum. Screaming to be sipped with ice & thoroughly enjoyed!

All our Rums at Harley House Distillery are made entirely in Sussex so therefore we can class ourselves as an English Rum. We are what is known as a 'Grain to Glass'. This means that we make our base spirit, of which we are 1 of 10 other distilleries in the whole of the UK to do this. This is what makes our Rum so distinctive.

Being a "Grain to Glass" distillery is a significant distinction in the spirits industry. It means that we can control every aspect of the production process, from selecting and sourcing the raw materials to distillation and ageing, ultimately leading to a more authentic and distinctive product.
