We’re launching a british spiced, artisan rum!!

Well, technically not The Little Gin Company! But our sister company, The Little Rum Company are… (it’s still us, Emma & Nicola behind the brand) – remember we LOVE spiced rum just as much as we love gin!!

AND, we’re crowdfunding to help us launch it to market. Of course, We would love your support! You can check out our full story and all the rummy rewards on offer at www.crowdfunder.co.uk/queen-cleo-spiced-rum


Why we want to launch our own spiced rum…

It’s simple really. We love spiced rum!

As we all know, the gin industry has exploded over the last few years, whereas the world of rum still feels relatively under-exploited.

Once an unglamorous staple of your (grandma’s) drinks cabinet, gin has re-created itself as Britain’s favourite tipple. With beautiful branding, an overwhelming choice of flavours and serves, the gin drinking experience is now at the height of fashion.

Emma & Nicola believe the rum industry can take inspiration from the success of gin. The boozy duo want to help give the glorious spirit of rum, steeped in history, full of flavour, the perfect cocktail companion… its time in the spotlight.


What is Queen Cleo Spiced Rum

It all started with a tale of the Badass Liquor Boss, Gertrude “Cleo” Lythgoe; rum running female of the Prohibition era. The Queen of the Rum Row, leading the revolution for a rum-soaked future with brains, beauty and breath-taking fury.

Gertrude “Cleo” Lythgoe was the fiery orchestrator of a highly profitable liquor shipping operation. A smuggler of rum (and other liquor) to the U.S, through the Bahamas in the 1920s.

Queen Cleo Spiced Rum is inspired by her story and will be at the forefront of the artisan, spiced rum revolution and we want you to be part of it.

Queen Cleo Spiced Rum begins its journey as a smooth, dark rum, run in from the Caribbean, before being fearlessly spiced in the UK, using a bold mix of botanicals!

A rum created for the insatiable thirst of any bad ass liquor lover.

BEAUTIFULLY branded and bottled.


The Plan

Our Queen Cleo Spiced Rum is teetering on the edge of reality. We have refined the taste and created the brand, we now need your support to launch it onto the market.

Your pledge will go towards final production of the rum including: Spicing, bottling, labelling and distributing our new spiced rum spirit

We know we’ve created a fantastically unique spiced rum that we will continue to enjoy and serve on our bar, but if you want to see Queen Cleo Spiced Rum available to buy, then please think about pledging through Crowdfunder, in exchange for some DELICIOUS rummy rewards.

Be part of the rum revolution.
