The Salford Rum Company has recently launched their small batch rum that was inspired by the spices imported into Salford historical docks. The rum is sold in eye-catching ceramic bottles, with a labelled designed by local artist Dave Draws.
The Salford Rum Company was started by two friends James Harrison and Tommy Gaughan, who wanted to create a small batch, column distilled rum that they themselves would want to drink. The result is an expertly blended golden rum spiced with vanilla, nutmeg, cinnamon and dried fruits.
The Salford Rum Company is currently, on their second batch of 200. The rum was previously only available by private request, with the partnership at The Lowry Hotel being the first time the rum is sold in a hotel and bar.
Drinks on the menu include The Rum Hatten – a delectable concoction of Salford Rum, Campari, Pink Port and Orange Bitters.
The Lowry Sour is a twist on a classic using Rum, Butterscotch Schnapps, Pineapple juice & vanilla syrup topped off with Malbec wine.
Their Rum Spirtz keeps us going back again and again with its delicious mix of Rum, Cointreau Blood Orange, Peach Puree, Elderflower & lemons topped off with prosecco – it’s the perfect aperitif before a meal.
Finally, for when you cant choose between another drink and a cocktail, there is the Cioccolato e crema – Rum, Mozart chocolate liquor, Sake, chocolate syrup, double cream. Delicious.
These cocktails are available from The Lowry Hotel Bar and River Restaurant.
