Lemon Hart & Sons
The history of rum is truly the history of sugar, two areas of trade where Lemon Hart’s grandfather began in 1720. For years after, amongst the grey granite wharves of Newlyn in Cornwall (a port town nearby Penzance), stevedores stacked cargo-stout barrels of early island rums, embarked at various Caribbean ports, imported by Abraham Hart for eventual sale or trade. By his death in 1784, Abraham Hart set the course for the family name for generations to come by securing a solid reputation as a reputable spirits merchant.
Aficionados take heart in the original signature line of Single Estate British-style rums distilled, aged and blended to ensure the highest quality, fullest flavoured, smoothest tasting rums available. Our rums today proudly represent over two hundred years of rumcraft and knowledge passed down through the generations at Lemon Hart & Son. As first official purveyor of rum to the British Royal Navy, Mr. Lemon Hart’s passion was always the rum; rum always is Lemon Hart & Son.
