A small-batch, single-cask rum, inspired by the bustling docks and shipyards of Liverpool, has been launched in the UK.
The latest addition to the super-premium Liverpool collection further enhances and complements Halewood’s spirits portfolio and reflects the heritage of its home city, England’s sixth largest, with its ‘rich maritime history’ and its role as a final destination for imported rum for centuries.
Liverpool Rum is distilled in Trinidad in column stills from sugar cane molasses. A premium, dark rum aged for 16 years, it is double matured and then finished in former American bourbon barrels, giving the rum a rich, deep amber colour and enhancing the oak and caramel in its taste profile.
At 43% ABV, the rum is recommended for sipping and savouring, served neat or over ice or as an alternative to alcoholic ginger beer in the cocktail Dark and Stormy. It’s available in a 70cl bottle and retails at £48 per bottle.
A spokesperson at Halewood Wines & Spirits commented: “The launch of Liverpool Rum was inspired by Liverpool’s rich heritage and culture. It celebrates the brand’s super-premium standards, appeals to rum connoisseurs and follows on from the outstanding popularity and success of Liverpool Gin.
“Liverpool Rum is the third spirit to join the expanding collection which includes Liverpool Vodka and three-strong Liverpool Gin variants.”
To further drive home the Liverpool connection, the glass bottle is adorned with an ‘impactful’ label and wax seal – as well as an emblem of a ‘liver bird’, which stands as a proud symbol of the city of Liverpool.
