SC Dogs Scilly Honey Spiced Rum
The Spirit of Bruce Christopher
The spirit of Bruce Christopher.
Bruce was the third generation of the Christopher family to work Boro Farm on Tresco. Fishing off the North End, tending his flowers and cattle, rowing his beloved gig Czar or on a Coastguard shourt, islanders knew a man as warm as the honey of the bees he kept.
We've distilled that gentle spirit of sea and land into SC Dogs Honey Spiced Rum. Handcrafted in small batches, aged and bottled on our farm, the lingering citrus notes of SC Dogs Honey Spiced Rum are balanced by a hint of Tresco honey. Enjoy on its own, over ice or with your favourite mixer.
Each bottle is dedicated to the history of one of our own sea dogs.
Here's to the honest strength of Bruce Christopher (1949-2013) coastguard, farmer, rower and SC Dog.
About SC Dogs
SC Dogs is run out of the first and only small-batch rum distillery on the neighbouring island of St. Martin’s. Andrew Walder, whose family have run Carron Farm on St. Martin’s for over 70 years, returned to the islands after working onboard the British Antarctic Survey, during which time he’d formed a fondness for a warming tot of rum!
Each spirit in the SC Dogs collection captures a different character, from fishermen and farmers, true sea dogs embodying the spirit of Scilly.
Aside from being a celebration of local community, Scillonian flavours are heroed too. Andrew grows sugar cane molasses on the farm, harvesting and combining with local twists to create unique flavour profiles. These special spirits are truly ‘crafted by the sea’, formed as much by their proximity to the Atlantic swell as by the rich stories of those for whom Scilly seas are their livelihood.
