Summer isn’t over yet…
Over the bank holiday weekend, Wood’s Rum – a fine export from a country on my bucket list, Guyana – held it’s second Wood’s Navy Rum Boat. A brand new way discover the city (London) by water this summer.
The Wood’s and Ladies & Gentlemen bar set sail their barge through the canals of London for a summer of exploration, boat tours with Wood’s rum cocktails (galore) in-hand. Seafarers got their own chance to soak up the charming sights of London via this boat tour and also experience mooring at a top riverside destination; Granary Square in King’s Cross.
To celebrate the Wood’s Rum Boat, I gave one of the brand’s recommended cocktails, Wood’s Greenheart Grog a try!
It’s worth noting that I am no cocktail maker, not even an amateur but that is soon to change as my party of testers each loved the cocktail. Roll on Friday!

Wood’s Navy Rum is a traditional British naval style rum, still bottled at 57% and made to the original navy recipe from 1887. The spirit is made from Demerara molasses and contains three different rums, all distilled at the Diamond Distillery in Guyana, South America, before being shipped to the UK. One of these rums is distilled in the 250-year old Versailles still; the only single wooden pot still in the world. The spirits are then aged in Scotland in American refilled oak barrels for an average of 3 years, before being blended and made into Wood’s Navy Rum, part of the William Grant & Sons
