The Duppy Share Rum

The Duppy Share. Launched this past July, The Duppy Share is an artful combination of three year old, 100% pot still Jamaican rum from the beautiful Worthy Park Estate and the warm, buttery finish of five year old rum from the famed Foursquare Distillery in Barbados. The result is a fine blend of bold, tropical fruit flavors in a golden, cask-aged rum that captures the spirit of the islands while representing the taste of the modern Caribbean. So smooth and delicious!

The Duppy Share is the brainchild of George Frost the youngest son of the late broadcaster Sir David Frost who spend many family holidays in the Caribbean and not only fell in love with the food, people and culture but also the rum. He is joined in the business by start-up guru Jessica Swinfen who honed her craft at Innocent Drinks. 

Together, they founded The Westbourne Drinks Company in London and initially toyed with the idea of creating rum there. Smartly they abandoned that idea and set out on a quest to find the perfect rums that would form the basis for the artistic creation they had in mind. The two scoured distilleries around the world, discreetly gathering only the best samples and experimenting with several blends.

They would eventually strike gold back in the Caribbean – the spiritual home of rum – when they created a tasty combination using premium rums sourced from the renowned rum islands of Jamaica and Barbados. It should be noted that the name ‘Duppy Share’ refers to the dark spirits or ghosts which, according to Caribbean folklore, roam the dead of night to steal the best of the aging rum from the old oak barrels. Now with a brand name that is quite the conversation starter, George and Jessica are focused on developing this exciting new Caribbean rum The Duppy Share into an international brand. 

you can’t fail to notice the design of bottle and its fab artwork. Inspired by the travel posters of the 1930’s and 40’s, it simultaneously invokes nostalgia, whilst achieving retro. No tacky images of cartoon pirates – this achieves a cool level of sophistication and is surely something you’ll want on display.
