Everything we do, we do by °degrees

Every variable is considered, every outcome is measured, giving exact results and optimal flavour

Whether that’s how we build our business stage by stage, bring our team together, measure and improve our impact on the environment, how we support and employ members of the local community, or begin to clean up the landfill site we’re building our research centre on: every variable is considered, every outcome is measured – we are constantly learning and improving.

Hence, we named the project ˚CELSIUS: a movement for improvement working with nature – not against it, through constant nurturing and degrees of change.

“The most exciting thing about this project is that my grandkids in the future will say “Grandad was part of The world’s first geothermal rum distillery and cask maturation research centre. A world’s first in sustainable rum making… at the time.

Yeah Mahn!”
