PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Down a backstreet in Salford, just under the railway lines, is not the first place you’d expect to discover a rum distillery. But the founders of the Dirty Old Town Distillery have just set up shop here in a railway arch near Blackfriars which will double as both their HQ, rum laboratory and, in time, a bar too. Tommy Gaughan and James Harrison met at school in Leigh, and after seeing a gap in the market, launched their first product in 2018, a spiced rum under the brand The Salford Rum Company. And despite a pandemic in the middle, the pair had their best year yet last year, selling a staggering 30,000 bottles in the UK, while their rum is now stocked in both Co-op and Morrisons stores too.

Our first that we launched in August in 2018, and you’ve got vanilla, dried fruit, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, a little bit of maple, and citrus. All things that would have been coming through the docks in the 1900s.

. The company name was, of course, a reference to the song of the same name by The Pogues. Salford Rum's still, Willow (Image: Kenny Brown | Manchester Evening News) The arch now boasts the pair’s huge craft rum-making still, which is capable of making up to 700 bottles of rum per batch. It was recently named Willow, after an appeal to fans of the brand and locals to find a suitable name. Willow was chosen from the original meaning of Salford - originally spelled Sealhford and meaning ‘ford by the willow tree’, which was offered up by local Salford resident Paul Sly. Co-founder Harrison went on: “We plan to make the venue a real centre for the spirit of Salford, serving as a community hub and one that can help to showcase talent from around this wonderful city and provide a meeting place for ideas and a melting pot for creativity. Rebecca Long-Bailey cut the ribbon last week (Image: Kenny Brown | Manchester Evening News) “We have so many big plans, and they all start with Willow, which takes centre stage in the venue and provides a real focal point for our tours and experiences. We can’t wait to welcome Manchester and Salford’s rum lovers to see what they make of the distillery as we venture forward on our journey into unchartered waters.” The venue, which was opened by MP Rebecca Long Bailey, will be hosting rum tastings that can be booked via the company’s website, and plans to open as a bar for selected events later in the year.
