Over 150 years ago, the true treasure of the Caribbean wasn’t to be discovered in a chest buried on a deserted island, it was to be found in oak barrels stored beneath the Thames. The property of one Alfred Lamb, gentleman and proprietor of a wine and spirit business, it contained Lamb’s Navy Rum. A spirit of his own making, it blended 18 of the Caribbean’s most treasured rums sourced from Trinidad, Guyana, Jamaica and Barbados.
The reason for its concealment under the river Thames was not one of secrecy. Mr Alfred Lamb understood that creating a smooth Rum took time and patience. Which is why he stored his in a cool cellar for 4 years before allowing a drop to be drunk. Luckily for us, Alfred decided it was a secret too good for him to keep and shared it with the Rum drinking world.
