Phillips Shrub Bottling Note

Shrub is an alcoholic cordial that was made back in the days of rum smuggling. When salty sea water somehow found its way into the tasty rum, shrub was used to mask the brine flavours. While you're not going to find any rum and sea water cocktails these days, shrub still makes a mighty fine accompaniment to the spirit.

Phillips of Bristol Shrub (Old English Alcoholic Cordial) Reviews

My favourite

Navy rum and shrub makes a lovely drink for an after dinner treat. I first had this twenty years ago in Cornwall and enjoy it to this day.

Introduced to this old drink by my F-I-L @ Trengilly Wartha inn, Cornwall.

One or more double Lambs Navy rum 57% plus this and some ice, certainly puts the world to rights👍👍

Phillips Shrub, for any rum drink you have to try this.

Woods rum and shrub, it’s the best. Why Shrub is not more widely available is beyond me!!!

An old (very old) favourite

I am not going to rate it because I have not tasted it for 45 years but in the day almost every old fashioned pub in Bristol had Phillips Lovage and Phillips Shrub and Rum & Shrub was often ordered.

Hallo, ich bin aus Deutschland und habe die letzte Woche Urlaub in England gemacht und dort erstmalig Wood's mit Shrub getrunken und fand es wundervoll, vielleicht ist noch zu erwähnen das ich eigentlich ein Whiskeytrinker bin.
Es war ein tolles Erlebnis ... jetzt habe ich das Problem, Shrubs in Deutschland aufzutreiben

1 part Shrub to 3 parts Woods rum in the saddle flask marvellous on a cold day.

I have used Phillips Shrub for some time and find that it makes a cheap, run of the mill rum into a very pleasant drink.

Surprising good. Very mello. Can hold its own in just a glass of ice. Very nice.
