Details

It’s a hundred nautical miles from the Isles of Scilly to the coast of France, across the unforgiving Atlantic swell. Our Great Great Grandfather John Nance used to row there and back in the family pilot gig to bring cargoes of contraband rum and brandy back to the Isles of Scilly.

Today, at the first and only distillery on St. Martins, we’ve distilled that indomitable spirit into SC Dogs White Rum. Handcrafted in small batches and bottled on our farm, SC Dogs White Rum is a delicately balanced, silky smooth premium rum with a warm, rounded finish and a tang of the sea.

Each bottle is dedicated to the history of one of our own sea dogs.

Here’s to John Nance (1797-1881) - farmer, rum smuggler 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.
