The Bottle

Beautiful bottle, beautiful rum

Salford Rum Bottle

Illustrated by Manchester artist Dave Draws in his trademark doodle map design, our bottle is based on a 1900 map of the Salford docks during its industrial heyday. Dave has reimagined the dock in his iconic doodle style picking out key landmarks from around the docks with references to the Irish folk song "Dirty Old Town" which was originally written about Salford.

Dave Draws is an illustrator working in Manchester who specialises in his doodle maps of different cities and towns. Dave picks out landmarks and attractions in cities and highlights them on his maps before surrounding them in his trademark doodle patterns. Dave sells these designs on prints, mugs, cushions and coasters and has 20 stockists around the UK.
Dave also does bespoke designs for companies either as digital designs or as murals and his past clients have included Channel 4, Unilad, CBRE, MCR Life and Innside New York.

Willow

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.
