The original Dead Man’s Fingers rum was created in a seafood bar in Cornwall. Aiming to “escape the tyranny of convention”, the makers went for innovative ingredients such as Cornish saffron cake, Pedro Ximénez ice cream, nutmeg, vanilla, and orange. As they expanded their drinks range, they went on to include flavours like cherry, mango, banana, and coconut. So, we were filled with expectation when they launched and alcohol-free spirit in 2022.

Like all Dead Man’s Finger rums, this one comes in a satisfyingly solid bottle, with a grinning skull. It promises something quite exciting, but it doesn’t quite deliver. It’s got a lovely dark rum colour but, apart from a nice spicy aftertaste, it’s a bit neutral altogether. Mixed with cola or ginger ale, it gets a bit lost.

As we always say, you’ll have to try it for yourself and make up your own mind up.
