Marigot Bay_Bottles_Low Res-13

New Caribbean inspired venue within King’s Court of Altrincham, South Manchester is celebrating the launch of its Rum Inventory to coincide with National Rum Day, this coming Thursday 16th August.

Owner of Marigot Bay Bar & Café, Dave Marsland, has put together an extensive list of 90 Rum, Rhum and Ron gathered from across the Caribbean islands, including some rare bottlings, with some now becoming discontinued.

To celebrate the launch of the Rum Inventory and National Rum Day, each tot of rum named within the inventory will be available with 10% off!

Highlights include the new range of Admiral Rodney of St Lucia, HMS Royal Oak, HMS Formidable and HMS Princessa, to go alongside the soon-to-arrive Bounty range and current favourite Chairman’s Reserve. To cap off the rums found in the original Marigot Bay of St Lucia, the rare 1931 bottlings can also be found on the list including the 4th, 5th and 6th editions.

Barbados gets in on the action with two releases from Foursquare distillery in Premise and Dominus, plus Santiago de Cuba’s Blanca and Añejo and the now discontinued Havana Club Añejo Reserva, all three hailing from Cuba.

Other discontinued highlights include the Dominican Republic’s Atlantico Private Cask and the original line-up from the Elements Eight range of St Lucia.

Rare bottlings include Appleton Estate’s Joy Anniversary Blend 25 Year, the rum that celebrates Master Blender Joy Spence and her achievements within the iconic Jamaican brand, plus local bottler Chorlton Whisky and his Travellers Rum bottling, one of only 36 available in the world.

An added addition to the list is an Irish Whiskey. The Irishman Founder’s Reserve Caribbean Cask Finish, a super-premium whiskey, is a rare vatting of Single Pot Still and Single Malt whiskeys finished for 6 months in Chairman’s Reserve rum casks. Sourced directly from the Walsh Whiskey distillery in Ireland, it’s not available in the UK, but can be enjoyed at Marigot Bay Bar & Café!

Opening Hours;
Wednesday-Friday from 5pm to late and from 12noon to late on Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays.

National Rum Day With Zacapa

Zacapa - The Rooster

The Rooster – Oblix at The Shard


50 ml Zacapa XO
40 ml Spiced Orchid Vermouth
15 ml Banana Liqueur
1 Spray Coconut Perfume

Inspiration: The Rooster is the embodiment of the vibrant culture of the streets of Ron Zacapa’s homeland, Guatemala and is the inspiration behind this cocktail. The team behind the bar at Oblix created this exclusive new serve; combining the rich and smooth flavours of Ron Zacapa’s most premium XO variation, aged 2,300m above sea level in the ‘House Above The Clouds’, with native banana, coconut and spiced orchid flavours; to evoke the vivacity, produce and people of the local streets, where the Rooster’s courage and bravado shines.

Zacapa - Le Vieux Connaught

Le Vieux Connaught – The Connaught Bar

Inspiration: Newly launching at London institution The Connaught Bar, renowned for its ultra-stylist décor and mouth-watering cocktails, the Ron Zacapa 23-based Vieux Connaught was inspired by the classic cocktail created in 1938 by Walter Bergeron at the Carousel bar in the Monteleone hotel, named after New Orleans’ French quarter: ‘Vieux carrè’. Providing an interactive and aromatic serve for guests, the drink is served bottled on a beautiful mirrored tray and smoked with saffron, with its smoky and spicy flavours evolving with time. Served on the rocks and garnished with orange peel to perfectly compliment Zacapa’s rich tones, saffron smoke finishes the drink with a layer of elegrant fragrance, evoking the essence of the exquisite spirit.
The Vieux Connaught cocktail is priced at £17 and is now available at The Connaught Bar.
