Our family roots stem from Burnt Savannah Westmoreland Jamaica and cross the seas 4000 miles to South London in the UK. We came from humble beginnings where 12 people lived in our family home pictured here where 5 brothers and 5 sisters were raised.

The name Flat Cap is paying homage to our late father who arrived from Jamaica in the early 1950's and was known for wearing a Flat Cap! and we are honoured to bare that symbol in our logo and our name.
Our initial product is rum as this spirit is close to our heart and our roots but we will add more drinks in the future. We pride ourselves on quality and taste and infuse flavour with experience. Taking a premium white base rum from the West Indies, we have added natural flavours to give a slightly different accent to appeal to different palates.
After distillation the flavour recipe is added and left to infuse for 5-7 days this helps to provide you the customer with that great smooth palate excitement.
Our rums are distilled in the traditional and authentic manner, the stills are all handmade and hand beaten copper. This choice allows the rum to have the most amount of contact with the copper which in turn provides the best quality product for you to enjoy.
