Matugga rolls out Liv Scottish rum range

A small Scottish distillery has unveiled a new range of rums.

Liv has been created by the husband and wife team of Paul and Jacine Rutasikwa of Livingston-based Matugga Distillers.

The range includes Pot Distilled White Rum at 42.5% abv (rrp £25.99) and a Navy Strength version at 57.5% abv (£31.99), alongside a 40% Black Spiced Rum (£25.99) made with Scottish heather.

There are also two 32% abv rum liqueurs:  Raspberry & Hibiscus flavour and Honey & Lavender (both £23.99). 

Head distiller Paul Rutasikwa said: “It’s been a rollercoaster of a year for many of us.

“Getting our new range to this point, bottled and ready, has been a challenge but we’re proud to be able to unveil our innovative new collection.

“It's a celebration of our love for craft rum, of Scotland’s nature, and the nation’s growing commitment to quality, local producers. 

“We wanted to create an accessible range of high quality rums that are of great value and showcase the diversity and flexibility of the spirit.”
