Old Salt Rum is the only rum fermented and distilled in England. It’s triple distilled in small batches using a traditional copper still. The rum seeks to evoke the taste of rum 200 years ago and has a Pirate theme to its rear label.
The rum is sealed with red wax with ES (English Spirit) emblazoned on the top of the bottle. English Spirit is the name of the distillery which produces the rum. The distillery is based in Cambridgeshire. The rum is sealed (once you get into the wax) with a synthetic cork stopper. The 50cl (not 70cl) bottle is taller and thinner than most. It will require carefully handling as it will be quite easily knocked over. The styling of the bottle, in keeping with the Pirate theme is very similar to Patron’s Pyrat Pistol rum. The packaging of which is supposed to evoke the image of the firearms a Pirate would have used. The rum retails at around £25 per bottle. I’ve yet to find it in a store but its available very easily online in the UK (maybe less so abroad).
