One-Eyed Rebel is a spiced botanical rum made with ginger and cassia. “It features sweeping undercurrents of vanilla and a flaming heart of rich cassia,” according to the brand. It comes in a colorful bottle that features a brass belly band inspired by old rum barrels. It is recommended served with coke, ginger beer or simply on the rocks.
“We’ve always loved rum; it’s our second favourite spirit and we’ve been working non-stop for the last year to use everything we’ve learnt in gin distillation to create the perfect spiced rum,” said Spirit of Manchester’s master distller, Seb Heeley. “With Manchester Gin, we’ve gone on a real journey, experimenting with how to get the most out of flavours. We’re so proud to be releasing our British botanical rum, distilled and crafted in our distillery in the heart of Manchester.”
This new spirit is the second that the Spirit of Manchester Distillery has released away from its core range of gins, following the launch of its Manchester Spirit Vodka last year.
Bottled at 40% ABV, One-Eyed Rebel rum is available direct from the Spirit of Manchester Distillery and retailers across the United Kingdom, and is priced at £28 per 70cl bottle.
In June of last year, 1,865 drinkers took part in a live-streamed event hosted by Manchester Gin that set a new Guinness World Record for the largest gin tasting across multiple venues. The UK spirits company smashed the previous record, which was previously held by The New World Trading Company. The bar operator had set the record back in February 2016 with 796 attendees who attended their event at nine venues across the UK.
