Welcome to Elizabeth Yard
We are whisky makers that geek out on rum. Grand Arôme. Wedderburn. Dunder. Rum has swagger that we can’t get enough of. Our whisky bond was once a naval rum store so naturally we sourced rum stocks to age in our sherry and bourbon octaves. Demerara and fresh oloroso? Jamaican funk and Islay peat? Yum.
Featuring rums from some of the most prestigious producers in the world, Elizabeth Yard is where we explore maturation and cask finishes, creating and bottling truly extraordinary rums.
Welcome to Elizabeth Yard.

Rum Returns to The Yard
Diamond Distillery - Guyana
Longpond - Jamaica
Caroni - Trinidad
Savanna - Réunion Island
South Pacific - Fiji
Selected rums have been finished in casks each imparting its unique characteristics. We begin with an unfinished reference cask marked ‘REF’. This is our starting point, from which we can trace the impact of each wood used in maturation. Our finishing casks include:
- Ungrogged (the Naval term for new oak) American Oak
- Spanish Oak Pedro Ximinez
- Red Wine Barrels
These three finishes set the rum in three different flavour directions, allowing a deep dive into the impact of maturation. With this we can examine rum through a wood program that is built with a whisky maker’s mindset.
