About us

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.  

Salford Docks

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.

Our 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.
