Named in honour of the notorious Welsh pirate ‘Black Bart’, or ‘Barti Dhu’, this is made from a blend of Caribbean rums seasoned with vanilla, clove, orange and laver seaweed from the Pembrokeshire coast. Serve this Welsh rum over ice, or try it with ginger beer and a slice of orange.
Originally employed by His Majesty’s Navy, John Roberts fell in with the pirate captain who raided his ship and eventually went on to succeed that man as captain. Known as Bharti Ddu, by then, Roberts was the first to fly the Jolly Roger flag and became famed for his elaborate garments, which influenced the way pirates have been portrayed ever since. It was said that Bharti Ddu would never go into battle without the accompanying sound of violins to spur him on.
