Dark Matter was the first dedicated rum distillery in Scotland. It came about after a holiday to the Carribean when the founders wanted to visit a rum distillery but could not find one that would accept visitors. They casually remarked that it would be easier to build a distillery themselves at which point Dark Matter Distillers sprang to life. "Our curiosity drives us while science inspires us. Combining knowledge and imagination we obsessively pursue flavour through systematic study, observation and experiment."
It took four years for Dark Matter Spiced Rum to evolve from an idea to reality but it has proved a successful venture and this Scottish rum now has fans all over the world.
Dark Matter Spiced Rum is a molasses-based rum with flavours of bell pepper, fresh ginger, green peppercorns and allspice. It is, according to the distillers, the taste equivalent of warping into a liquid black hole but without every atom in your body being crushed to an infinitely small point. We have no idea either - perhaps more tasting is required!
