It sees them collaborate with Salford Pride on the bottle, which they is a “glorious celebration of diversity.”
The bottle itself is designed by Manchester artist Dave Draws, featuring a hand-penned map of the city that has been painted with the colours of the rainbow.

So what does the rum taste like? Well, it’s described as a bubbling pot of marmalade, fruitcake, maple syrup, woody spices, dried fruit and heavy vanilla.
The brand say it’s “truly a rum for all seasons” that’s not too sweet and not without a warming fire in its belly.
The bottle is priced at £53 and will see The Salford Rum Company make a contribution to support future LGBT+ events in the area for every bottle sold.
