Duppy Share Winter Punch Time

You’ll be reading all about Duppy Share soon enough on these pages but in the interim, one thing that has stood out, wherever I’ve tasted the Rum, is just how well it seems to fit into a punch. With the weather starting to take a turn towards the chilly, I thought that a few Duppy Share warm punch recipes might be the order of the day………..

Snuggle Dup

Snuggle Dup - low res (1)An ideal alternative to mulled wine, this is a large-scale warm punch that will serve around 10 people…..it’s also a recipe that allows the character of the base spirit to show…..


  • 500ml of Duppy share
  • 2 litres of cloudy apple juice
  • about 5cm of sliced fresh ginger (I always peel it)
  • 2 ripe pears, thinly sliced lengthways
  • 2 cinnamon sticks (plus extra to garnish)
  • the juice of 4 limes
  • 3 tablespoons of brown sugar


  • Pour the apple juice into a large saucepan, add the ginger, pears, lime juice, cinnamon and brown sugar
  • Bring the heady mixture to the boil and simmer until all of the sugar has dissolved
  • Serve in a suitable heatproof glass or mug and add a good measure (at your discretion / heavy-handed measure) of Duppy Share and sink a cinnamon stick for stirring / garnish

Sip, sip and sip again!
