  7. Spirited fundraiser for Tar Barrels!

    Leave a Comment

    We’re thrilled to have been part of the Carnival Committee initiative to introduce two Tar Barrel spirits to help with fundraising. The gin and rum are made by Lyme Bay Winery and have been rebranded with the instantly recognisable Tar Barrels logo.


    The traditional dry gin has botanical flavours of juniper, floral, and citrus notes alongside intoxicating aromas of verbena and the freshness of orange peel, lemon, and lime.


    For rum lovers, the warming Lugger rum is spiced with a blend of nutmeg, cloves, orange peel and a hint of vanilla.

    A tasting event is being run tonight (Friday November 24) at St Mary’s Church from 4pm to late.

    Priced at £40 for rum and £38 for gin for a 70cl bottle, these fantastic fundraising spirits, plus the branded wines, can be purchased from the Tar Barrels Merchandise shop in Silver Street and the Volunteer Inn in Broad Street. Perfect for Christmas gifts…
