For rum loving or rock and roll dads, Salford Rum is the go-to tipple for Father’s Day – and, for a short time only (starting 4th June) – you can grab a FREE enamel mug or hand-engraved glass tumbler with every 70cl bottle purchased on www.salfordrum.com to make dad extra happy.
The Salford Rum Company’s delicious premium spiced rums were created to be a passionate celebration of the history, heritage and people of Salford Docks in Greater Manchester throughout the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. An era whereby the city’s Salford Docks grew to be the third largest port in the UK, the spirits take inspiration from the incredible rums, fruits and spices from the Caribbean which were landing on British shores for the first time during that bygone era.
Encased in amazing ceramic bottles designed by the iconic illustrator and artist, Dave Draws, famous for his intricate maps of northern towns and cities, the result is something very special; much like the city where these rums were born – famous for its iconic music and cultural scene – character prevails, along with great taste and a versatility and confidence that even pleases rum lovers, summer drinkers and experts alike.
For Father’s Day 2021, any purchase of the 70cl Salford Original Spiced Rum or Salford Dark Spice Rum will come with either a free, heavyweight hand-engraved glass tumbler, or a free enamel mug that also features artwork by Dave Draws to create a real collector’s piece.
The original Salford Spiced Rum, much loved by local rum aficionados, was created as a tribute to the dock workers who were the beating heart of the city’s great dock during the 1800’s and 1900’s.
This delicious golden spiced rum is produced in small batches, column distilled in the shadows of old Salford Docks, and expertly infused with vanilla, nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger and dried Caribbean fruits.
It boasts a striking, eye catching ceramic bottle, making it the perfect gift for the discerning rum lover who seeks out quality spirits for sipping and cocktail making at home. It lends itself to loads of amazing cocktails, including the Salford Dirty Old Fashioned and the uber-cool Lads Club Soda.
Dark Spice was the second addition to the Salford Rum range and has developed a real cult following both regionally and nationally. Just like the rums unloaded into Salford Docks during its heyday, Dark Spice blends specially selected rums from Barbados, matured for up to eight years in ex-Bourbon, American white oak casks. It scooped a silver medal at the World Rum and Cachaca Awards.
The Salford Rum Company’s expert distillers have combined these pot and column distilled rums with a distinct spice blend to deliver an exceptional Dark Spice rum that delights with flavours of vanilla, coconut, burnt caramel and cloves; it’s the perfect pairing to ginger beer and makes a fabulous Cuba Libre.
Dark Spice is presented within a bold and beautiful matte black ceramic bottle with a wooden stopper and features the instantly recognisable Salford Docks map design, printed in beautiful white detail.
