Ranulph-Fiennes-RumBritish explorer Sir Ranulph Fiennes also entered the world of spirits this week with the launch of a rum, created in partnership with English Spirit, which runs production sites in Essex and Cornwall.

Sir Ranulph Fiennes’ Great British Rum was made by adding different types of wood to the still during distillation. The spirit is not aged after distillation.

Dr John Walters, master distiller at English Spirit, used wood from various destinations that Sir Ranulph has travelled to during his adventures, such as sequoia from Canada, pine from Norway and date palm from Oman.
