“From Wales to the world…”
The Red Dragon is the national flag of Wales and the Royal Welsh badge bears the motto, ‘Y ddraig goch ddyry cychwyn’, which translates as ‘The red dragon inspires action.’ It features in ancient Welsh tales and was the battle standard of legendary Welsh princes. Welshman Henry Tudor took the flag to Bosworth, where, in 1485, he became the last king of England to be crowned on the battlefield.

Lehman (“Lemon”) Hart’s destiny in the world of rum began close to 50 years before his birth on 31 October 1768 in Penzance, Cornwall, England. The year was 1720 when his grandfather, Abraham Hart, a young enterprising merchant who settled in Penzance from Germany, began importing and trading in rums sourced from various islands in the Caribbean. Some 80 years later Lemon Hart would transform the family business by creating a unique blend of the finest rums and subsequently receive the inaugural appointment from the Admiralty as supplier of rum to the British Royal Navy.
Lemon Hart & Son rums, still to this day, are proudly distilled, Bourbon barrel aged and blended at a single estate in the Demerara region of Guyana, to ensure the highest quality, fullest flavoured rums. The stills, the location, the craft, skill and passion of the people who work at the distillery contribute distinctively to the single source character and flavour of our rums. When you buy single estate, you know quality as your source.
Rum always, since 1804.
