The Salford Rum Company

The Salford Rum Company

Salford, Lancashire

The Salford Rum Company was launched in August 2018 by Salfordians Tommy Gaughan and James Harrison. Having seen the rise of craft gin and being more partial to spiced rum, Tommy and James spotted a gap in the market for a premium, small batch spiced rum, and so decided to launch their own.

Through their research, they identified the strong links between their hometown of Salford and the rum and spice imports into the local docks, from the Caribbean during Salford's industrial heyday. Their spiced rum recipe inspired is by these imports; it is a celebration of Salford and a tribute to the dockworkers that were the beating heart of the city.
