A pioneering project created by the award-winning Ian Burrell (Global Rum Ambassador) & renowned Mr Lyan Studio in collaboration with the Cornish Geothermal Distillery Company. Launching with the world’s first tropical rum cask maturation biomes, culminating with a carbon-neutral, 100% sustainable rum distillery and destination experience.
Rum for The Future
“Rum is one of the most exciting spirits from a food & drinks trade perspective. We’re seeing a greater movement towards transparency and authenticity, and with a shift back towards fine rums, it is regaining its place in the world’s best cocktails, and fittingly, it is back being served in a manner that reflects its quality, history and profile”
Ryan Chetiyawardana aka Mr Lyan, owner of World’s Best Bar and International Bartender of the Year (2015)
Our tropical biome will be based in an idyllic location on a World Heritage site, harnessing natural spring water and waste geothermal energy from hot rocks deep beneath Cornwall to power a series of sustainable, climate-controlled maturation biomes that never depend on seasons and weather patterns. Mineral-rich hot spring water nurtures a heated haven for the tropical plants, creating humidity and the optimal environment for uniquely ageing spirits. A balance of technology and art in a pioneering exploration of spirit ageing and maturation.
