The Spirit of John Nance – White Rum
It’s a hundred nautical miles from the Isles of Scilly to the coast of France, across the unforgiving Atlantic swell. SC Dog 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 the Isle of Scilly’s own sea dogs.
