Caribbean born and Manchester made – the ARLU rum collection comes courtesy of Mark Smallwood and Liam Manton at Alderman’s Drinks, the same people behind Didsbury Gin, who first came to prominence courtesy of the BBC TV show Dragon’s Den.

The rum is imported from the award-winning Demerara Diamond Distillery and blended with unique natural flavours and spices in the heart of Manchester.  The collection includes three new flavours in the range; ARLU RUM Original Spiced, ARLU RUM Passionfruit & Mango and ARLU RUM Blood Orange. My personal favourite was the Passionfruit & Mango flavour.

Mark Smallwood and Liam Manton created Didsbury Gin in 2017 and the brand has gone from strength-to-strength since their Dragon’s Den appearance in January 2018 and the latest listing comes on the back of a successful year for the drinks business, which announced earlier this year that domestic sales surpassed the £1m mark.

“Consumers and connoisseurs are constantly looking for innovation, more so than ever in the rum category as the ‘rumaissance’ shows no signs of slowing down, and this range of beauties won’t disappoint.” Liam Manton
