Dark Spiced Rum
The Salford Rum Company’s Dark Spice Rum is inspired by the Caribbean liquor and spices that came ashore at the Salford Docks in the late 1800s and beyond. As a nod to the rich trading heritage and melting pot multiculturalism of what was the third largest port in the UK, they’ve set up a column still just a stone’s throw from the historic quayside. Here, they’ve created this small batch dark rum, by blending Caribbean rums aged for up to eight years in ex-Bourbon casks, and infusing them with vanilla, coconut, cloves and burnt caramel. All that Dark Spice has been trapped beneath a heavy wooden stopper in a gorgeous black matte bottle designed by Manchester artist Dave Draws, featuring a hand-penned map of the city. With the Lowry Centre, MediaCityUK and so much regeneration around The Quays and Chapel Street, Manchester’s neighbour is pretty hot property right now. And slap bang in the middle of it all we’ve discovered a truly stunning rum.
Festive and treacly, this is a bubbling pot of burnt gingerbread, molasses, cinnamon sticks, well-fired crème brûlée top and clove. The Salford Rum Company’s Dark Spice Rum dials back the tropical paradise of the classic version and ramps up the dark winter wonderland with the Northern Lights flashing overhead. Truly a rum for the long winter nights and Christmas period, it’s not too sweet and not without a warming fire in its belly. It can be sipped neat over ice; mixed with cola (particularly The Artisan Tonic’s Barrel Smoked Cola); shaken into festive cocktails; consumed with a fiery ginger beer and a squeeze of orange; or added to your Christmas cake to give it a kick and a treacle richness.
