Salford Dark Spiced Rum 70cl 40% ABV
Salford Dark Spiced Rum
Dark Spice is the second addition to the Salford Rum range and continues to take inspiration from the rum and spice imports into Salford docks during the early 1900s.
Blended and bottled in the heart of Salford, this delicious darker spiced rum delivers flavours of vanilla, coconut, burnt caramel and cloves, making the perfect pairing with cola or ginger beer.
Just like the rums unloaded into Salford docks during its heyday, Dark Spice blends specially selected Caribbean rums that have been matured for up to 8 years in ex-Bourbon, American white oak casks. Salford have combined these pot and column distilled rums from Barbados with a distinct spice blend of vanilla, coconut, burnt caramel and cloves, to deliver this exceptional Salford Dark Spice rum.
Dark Spice is presented within a stunning matte black bottle with a wooden stopper and features our instantly recognisable Salford Docks map design, drawn by local artist Dave Draws, printed in beautiful white detail.
The Salford Rum Company is a celebration of the history, heritage and people of Salford Docks throughout the late 1800’s and early 1900’s.
During this era, Salford Docks grew to be the third largest port in the UK, and amongst the industrial imports of the time, were rums, fruits and spices from the Caribbean.
The Salford Rum Company spiced rum is inspired by these imports and delivers a blend of warm spices, nutmeg, cinnamon and ginger, combined with sweet vanilla notes, a hint of maple and topped with orange and steeped fruits.
Salford rum is copper column distilled in small batches before it is infused with fruits and spices, filtered and hand-bottled, into a ceramic bottle featuring a doodled map of the dockyard, designed by local artist Dave Draws. All this happens just a stones-throw away from the old Salford Docks.
Nestled under the Salford railway lines, just a stones throw from Manchester city centre is The Dirty Old Town Distillery, home to Salford Rum and the Spiced Rum Experience.
Willow is Salford’s 380L column still. The name Willow was chosen by Salford resident Paul Sly and is a reference to the willow trees that grow alongside the banks of the River Irwell that flows through their great city. Salford itself is named after the very same Willow trees, originally derived from the Anglo-Saxon Sealhford “sallow-tree ford”.
The Willows was also the name of the stadium that was the home of Salford Rugby League from 1901 – 2011.
