Our new Needham Spiced Rum

We are delighted to introduce you to Needham Spiced Rum, our special-edition spiced rum crafted in collaboration with award-winning distiller, the Wensleydale Spirit Company.

Named after our decadent bar, Needham Spiced Rum is a beguiling spirit with a smooth taste that appeals to rum connoisseurs and new converts alike. We have balanced the spices that work as the base of the rum so that they come in waves and do not upset the smoothness of the spirit, which combines top notes of cocoa, tangerine, and vanilla, a nod to the confectionary businesses that have been present in the North of England for centuries.

We will be serving Needham Spiced Rum alongside the recently launched 1832 Matfen Gin. Both spirits can be enjoyed neat or on the rocks, or as a luxurious base for cocktails.
