Brummie Rum Meets Brew: Limited Edition Coffee-Flavoured Rum Has Launched And There’s Only 350 Bottles Up For Grabs!

01 November 2023

Two Birmingham brands, Burning Barn Rum and Quarter Horse Coffee, have teamed up to create a unique, super limited-edition drink — Brandy Barrell Finished Coffee Rum.

Available to buy online now, coffee and rum enthusiasts must act quickly if they want to get their hands on the exclusive drink as there are only 350 bottles available. 

Priced at £47, the limited-edition 40% alcoholic drink is infused with a special combination of Burning Barn’s finest aged rums and the rich flavours of Quarter Horse’s Ethiopian coffee blend, perfect for an Espresso Martini. 

Finished in a recently emptied VSOP brandy barrel, the coffee-flavoured rum brings together almond, orange peel and oak-spiced flavours, creating a dark, bronze look that is sealed with wax. 

To celebrate the collaboration and launch, the two brands will be donating 10% of all profits to Voices of the Children — a charity providing psychological support to Ukrainian children impacted by the ongoing conflict. 

Harry Jenner, Co-founder and COO at Burning Barn Rum, said: “We’re passionate about independent food and drink producers in Birmingham so with the growing trend for coffee flavours in booze, we knew we had to collaborate with Quarter Horse Coffee. 

“Not only are they a stand-out coffee roaster in Birmingham, but their attention to detail in both sourcing and processing coffee is unmatched and we are very excited to see how coffee and rum fans react to our unique, super limited-edition drink!”

Nathan Retzer, Founder of Quarter Horse Coffee, added: “We are very excited to be collaborating with Burning Barn on this rum project.  We are a local Birmingham business that is focused on quality and making a product of the highest standards and it was precisely these shared priorities that made the collaboration the perfect fit.

“The care they take in each of their rums is meticulous. After having some great conversations about flavour and how our two products would work together, we were happy to partner to make this truly one-of-a-kind rum.”
