Work that magic

A CRAFT spirits firm based in the north east of England is hoping to make magic with the release of a new spiced rum.

Gateshead-based Steampunk has added to its range with the launch of Steampunk Voodoo Spiced Rum. The spirit, a blend of Caribbean rums infused with vanilla, ginger and black pepper, is priced at £25 a bottle.

It joins the established Steampunk range, which includes Steampunk Gin, Steampunk Pirate Gin and flavoured gins Prudence and Florence.

Steampunk managing director, Charlie Gibbs (pictured left), said: “More and more people are seeking new and interesting taste experiences, and we’ve come up with something that offers an alternative and contemporary take on a classic drink.”
