Dragons’ Den Pitch: Where Can I Buy Rockstar Spirits?
The Dragons are served by a confident beverage entrepreneur with a selection of top-quality spiced rum.
He has an unusual piece of family history to fall back on …
His great-great-uncle was the first person to swim the English Channel in 1875.
Manchester-based Tom Hurst steps into the den and offers a bespoke cocktail called The Dragons’ Daiquiri – made with spirits from a distillery in Guyana.
He is looking for funding for his premium liquor business Rock star spirits.
He wants £ 25,000 in return for a two percent stake in his company.
Where can I buy Rockstar Spirits?
Since its launch in 2018, Tom’s has launched seven products.
Rockstar Spirits takes premium single distillery rums and combines them with natural flavor combinations to deliver a stunning range of spiced rums.
These include Pineapple Garnets, Passion Fruit Garnets, Grapefruit Garnets, Two Swallows Cherry, and Two Swallows Orange and Ginger.
All products are available on Amazon, while select beverages are sold in Booths, Morrisons, Majestic and Sainsbury’s.
We love the design of the bottles, not to mention the taste of the liquor!
Rockstar Spirits: What Do the Dragons Say?
Well that would be revealing!
We don’t want to reveal too much about whether the five dragons are investing or not.
But we’ll say Deborah loves the packaging!
A satisfied customer at Amazon says it is “the best tasting overproof rum ever”.
Another gives it five stars and says, “I bought it at random after it was checked that morning.
“I was curious why Holly and Phil were so crazy about it, but I can understand why!
“I’m usually a scotch drinker and I never drink rum (or shots!) But this is a turning point.
“Much nicer than any spiced rum that just gets stuck in the back of the drinks cabinet and is forgotten, you will not forget it!”
