And Now Geothermal Rum From Cornwall!

This article on ThinkGeoenergy is entitled New Project To Bring You “Tropically” Matured Rum From Cornwall’s Geothermal Heartland.

This is the introductory paragraph.

What a product addition to the United Downs Deep Geothermal Project? Distillery startup Cornish Geothermal Distillery Company is pushing forward with plans to produce “tropically” mature rum using heat from the UK’s first geothermal power facility.

The Cornish Geothermal Distillery Company has a web site for more information.

This is a paragraph from the Think Geoenergy article.

In the release shared with us it is reported that Matthew Clifford, founder of the Cornish Geothermal Distillery Company (CGDC), has submitted outline plans for an ultra high-tech biome which would incorporate his patent-pending, carbon-neutral rum “cask maturation pods” designed by Grimshaw Architects alongside Buro Happold – globally recognised for innovative architecture that respects the planet’s resources whilst being functional and awe inspiring.

It seems to be an ambitious carbon-neutral project that could create up to a hundred jobs.

  1. Does geothermal heat mean Cornwall will be able to grow the sugar cane as well?!

  2. I wouldn’t think so. The article says that they bring in the rum from around the world and mature it in Cornwall.
