SPICED Rum Experience
Nestled under the Salford railway lines, just a stones throw from Manchester city centre is The Dirty Old Town Distillery, home to Salford Rum and the Spiced Rum Experience.
We hope Salford Rum fans, seasoned rum aficionados, or cocktail lovers, will enjoy this up close and personal opportunity to sample our rums first hand, in the distillery where they're made and learn about the history of spiced rum and our journey so far.
Our Spiced Rum Experience lasts around 60 mins and includes:
• Guided tasting of 4 of our rums
• Two expertly mixed rum cocktails
• Insight into the history of rum
and spices through Salford Docks
• The story of how a drunken idea
turned in to Salford Rum
• Q&A Session
•10% discount off purchases in our rum shop
After your experience, the shop and bar will be open for you to enjoy a few more tipples if you wish, and there is a great selection of pubs nearby, including The Blackfriar, The Eagle Inn, The Kings Arms and many more, or wander into MCR city centre just a 10 minute walk away.
Over 18s only.

Willow is our 380L column still. The name Willow was chosen by Salford resident Paul Sly and is a reference to the willow trees that grow alongside the banks of the River Irwell that flows through our great city. Salford itself is named after the very same Willow trees, originally derived from the Anglo-Saxon Sealhford "sallow-tree ford".
The Willows was also the name of the stadium that was the home of Salford Rugby League from 1901 - 2011.
