About The Portsmouth Distillery
The Portsmouth Distillery Co. is a premium artisan spirit producer. We were established in 2018 and have our home in the fabulous eighteenth century Bastian of Fort Cumberland. Located on Eastney Point on the southeastern tip of Portsea Island – Surrounded by the Sea and Centuries of naval history.
We produce a range of spirits for your enjoyment. Buy through our online shop, in person at the Fort or at one of the many events we’re exhibiting at.

Tudor Gin – Our latest product, launched June 2020. Botanicals from a recipe found on the Mary Rose including cherry, hemp seed, dandelion and hazlenuts. A donation from each bottle sold goes to the Mary Rose Trust.
1968 White Rum. Made from Sugar Cane syrup, producing a more aromatic flavour.
Cinnabar Spiced Rum – launched April 2019. Winner of Craft Botanical Spirit, Spirit Expo 2019 and IWSC Bronze in 2020. Named after the red and black coloured Cinnabar moth found at the Fort.
Forum – “Garden Rum” flavoured with five botanicals, this is a cross over between Rum and Gin.
Fort Cyder – small batch hand picked Hampshire apples make our Cyder. Next batch now available.
Aged Rum – we’ve begun to lay down batches of our 1968 to age in oak barrels. Available in mid-2022.
We’re passionate about the artisan spirit movement and giving Portsmouth it’s own distillery for the first time in hundreds of years.
