    The Salford Spiced Rum

    A Caribbean-inspired spiced rum from The Salford Rum Company, produced in small batches and expertly infused with vanilla, nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger and Caribbean fruits. This fruity, spicy rum is a tribute to the dock-workers who were the beating heart of Salford Docks during the 1800s, it even features a doodled map of the dockyard, designed by a local artist, on its distinctive ceramics bottle.

    Mount Gay Select Blend / TWE Exclusive

    The world’s first exclusively-bottled Mount Gay rum: cask-strength and blended from both pot- and column-still spirit from the Mount Gay distillery. This is a big and bold Barbadian rum, the island’s tropical Caribbean climate dialling Mount Gay's classic, naturally-sweet butterscotch and tropical fruit flavours up to 11, and adding layers of complexity and nuance. Aged for seven years and blended from carefully selected casks, it balances fruity spirit against sweet and spicy oak for a rum sure to appeal to whisky connoisseurs just as much as rum fans. Available only at The Whisky Exchange.

  • Havana Club Seleccion de Maestros

    Havana Club Seleccion de Maestros

    A relaunch of Havana Club's Cuban Barrel Proof edition, Selección de Maestros has benefited from an eye-catching packaging upgrade and is bottled at 45% for extra oomph. The Gold Medal-winning liquid inside Havana Club Selección de Maestros remains the same as for the old Cuban Barrel Proof - as the name suggests, the casks have been hand-picked by the maestros roneros from the company's finest aged stocks. The rums selected by the maestros roneros are finished in special casks chosen for their aromatic properties before being bottled at a higher strength than the standard range for a more intense, immediate flavour on the palate.

  • Plantation Guyana 1998 Rum / Ocho Cask Finish

    70cl / 44.8%

    Plantation Guyana 1998 Rum / Ocho Cask Finish

    Distilled in 1998 and matured for 17 years in Guyana. The majority of the maturation occurred in ex-bourbon barrels, but this rum was finished for six months in Ocho Tequila casks. After this the rum was moved to France, where it rested in casks that previously held Ferrand Cognac, before being bottled in 2018 by Plantation. The nose holds bright, fresh notes of agave, followed by zesty limes, black pepper, almonds and mango. The palate is full-bodied, with dense oak notes, salty olives, cloves and cocoa.

    Veritas White Rum

    An absolutely delicious rum, created from a blend of Coffey column still rum from Foursquare and pot still rum from Hampden. Absolutely nothing else has been added and this has not been filtered. Round and rich on the palate with a hint of green banana, pineapple, liquorice and a fantastic freshness on the finish. This makes one hell of a Daiquiri.
