Hot Rum Cow is an independent magazine for people who are fascinated by great beers, wines & spirits – and the extraordinary stories behind them. We’ve named it after a warm cocktail made from rum, milk, brown sugar and nutmeg. Some people love it, others don’t get it – and that’s exactly the sort of magazine we publish.
