Moulded by the darkness

• The rum has been aged for 16 years.

A NEW small-batch rum said to have been inspired by the docks and shipyards of 17th century Liverpool – often the final destination port for rum – has been launched.

The latest addition to Halewood’s Liverpool range of spirits, Liverpool Rum is a 43% ABV dark rum which is distilled on the island of Trinidad and aged for 16 years; the spirit is double matured and finished in ex-American bourbon barrels, which is said to give the rum a “rich, deep amber colour” and enhance the oak and caramel in its taste profile.
The new Liverpool Rum is intended to reflect the heritage of Halewood’s home city and is packaged in a 70cl bottle featuring the Liver Bird emblem – the symbol of Liverpool.
A spokeswoman for Halewood Wines & Spirits said the new rum, which joins a vodka and gin in the Liverpool range of spirits, “further enhances and complements Halewood’s spirits portfolio and reflects the heritage of its home city”.
