If you’re heading to Manchester Rum Festival this weekend [Saturday 28th August] you’re in for a very exclusive treat. Festival owner Dave Marsland and The City of Manchester Distillery have created an entirely unique, never-tasted-before rum solely for ticket holders.
Just 100 bottles of The Double Distillery Pot Limited Edition Column Still Rum will be available on the day.
This extra special, limited-edition bottling is a blend of Barbadian rum aged in the Caribbean for 12 years, before spending a further 5 years in the barrel in the north of England with Batch No 1. of Manchester’s first ever legally produced rum, from the City of Manchester Distillery.
If you’re not heading to the Rum Festival, what are you thinking?
Bringing with it over 30 rum brands from around the world, this year’s festival takes place in the 4-star Mercure Hotel on Saturday 28 August, at the heart of the city in Piccadilly Gardens.
The event has been a sell-out for the previous four years so waste no more time. Tickets are priced at £30 plus booking fee, including all samples.
