Details

Traditionally crafted with a modern twist, Mainbrace is a unique golden 'spliced rum'. A premium blend of unaged agricole from Martinique and 2-5 year old rums from 3 different stills in Guyana. 

A saying synonymous with celebration, "Splice the Mainbrace" was born from courage, loyalty and teamwork. It embodies the spirit of celebrating a hard-won victory.

Originating in the heart of battle, a brave team of sailors would attempt to ‘"splice the mainbrace" if it was damaged to save the main mast of a ship - a difficult, but vital task. If they succeeded, they would be rewarded with a double ration of rum to celebrate along with a toast to “the Queen – God bless her”. The sweetest victories always come after the hardest of battles.

Traditionally crafted with a modern twist, Mainbrace is a unique golden 'spliced rum'. A premium blend of unaged agricole from La Favourite Distillerie and 2-5 year old rums from 3 different stills in Guyana. Mainbrace is produced using locally sourced sugar cane as well as traditional pot and column still distillation. The same methods and stills were used to create rum for the British Navy as far back as 1732. We believe our rum speaks for itself and that is why there are no sweeteners or colourings added to our blend.

Our blend originates from Guyana near the banks of the Demerara river in 1670, a region that's home to its own eponymous variety of rum. Ours is crafted with rums aged between 2-5 years from 3 different stills, all bringing their own unique character and natural sweetness to the blend.

The first part of our blend comes from a double wooden pot still in Port Mourant. These stills have been making rum for the navy since the 19th century.

The second part is from the wooden Coffey still originally found at the Enmore Sugar Estate. This is the last still of its kind in the world.

The final part of our blend comes from an original four column French Savalle still, dating back to the 18th century.

The agricole part of our blend comes from La Favorite in Martinique, which was established in 1842 and is well-known for their punchy agricoles even at low abvs. The initial earthy textures you experience when sipping Mainbrace can be attributed to this distillery. The distillery is powered on a closed loop system that uses the excess fibres (bagasse) of sugar cane to fuel its furnaces. These then create the steam to distil their Rhums making the distillery extremely sustainable. In fact, they are the last distillerie in Martinique still working purely from steam.
