We are thrilled to announce that Jim & Tonic is expanding its business here on Sugar House Island and is set to open its first ever rum distillery next to the current gin bar in September 2023. The Rum House will feature a state-of-the-art distillery, new rooftop bar, private event space and even flexible working space.

There will be a cocktail bar on the ground floor, which will offer regular events and screening, while the private space on the first floor will be available to hire for parties big and small, up to 150 people. The terrace will feature an open-plan rooftop bar, which can also be hired on request.

In the words of founder James Mark, “The Rum House and Distillery is all about bringing new fun products and experiences to a wide variety of people. The cocktail bar will showcase made-on-site products transformed into amazing cocktails by our in-house mixologist, Seb. The Distillery school will be capable of providing classes to all levels of interest and abilities, whether you’re a wannabe Master Distiller or just looking for something fun to do with family and friends. As a whole, the venue is there to be used any time of day, from the garden roof terrace to the event space, which will be capable of catering for pretty much any event you can think of. We look forward to seeing you down at the Rum House.”

Jim & Tonic has become an icon of our island, and we’re excited to be able to support its expansion and be a part of its journey!

The Rum House will open on 9 September at 2 Danes Yard. Come along and enjoy a drink or two, with a canal-side view.
