Dark Matter Distillers to sell its first ever Scottish rum at auction

Dark Matter Distillers has announced it will be selling its first nine bottles of it cask-aged rum via auction.

Claiming to be Scotland’s first rum distillery, the start-up filled the virgin American oak barrel casks in August 2015.

Six years later the bottles have an undiluted cask strength of 66.3%, having intensified during maturation.

The bottles will be sold via Rum Auctioneer on 5 November, with the auction concluding on 15 November.

Jim Ewen, managing director of Dark Matter Distillers, said: “We’re incredibly excited to bring a truly unique offering to auction and take another step forward in our continual growth as a rum producer.

“Bottles 01 – 09, from cask 001, from Scotland’s first rum distillery represent a wonderful opportunity for collectors, but also announce that we’re here for the long term; committed to the highest standards of rum distilling.”

Joe Wilson, head of auction content at Rum Auctioneer, added: “It’s a pleasure and unique opportunity for us to be able to put a spotlight on rum produced right here in Scotland.

“Having followed their story and unique production processes over the last six years, we are particularly excited to now offer Dark Matter Distiller’s inaugural cask aged rum at auction.

“Drawn from Scotland’s very first rum cask, the Physicist Series offers a true piece of rum history for any avid enthusiast or collector.”
