Is Rum the New Gin?

Gin lovers, we have some news. It lasted a while, and we had some good times, but gin might not be the drink of the moment anymore *gasps*.

We’re welcoming a new favourite tipple: rum. Salford Rum, to be exact.

It’s the drink we’ve been craving as the days get shorter. This old world, spiced concoction is made even richer with hints of vanilla, nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger and dried Caribbean fruit. Small batch releases move this brand away from the commercial offerings saturating the current market, and even the bottle is a work of art.

Designed by famous Manchester artist, Dave Draws, it features his trademark doodle map style and subtly incorporates the Manchester bee as a nod to its Salford roots. You’ll also find Dave’s epic doodling on a giant bee sculpture by Piccadilly station that’s part of this summer’s Bee In the City trail.

Catch us moving away from the over-done summer cocktails this season for a Salford rum and ginger on ice.
