Read on to learn more about Rockstar Spirits and the other pitches in this week’s episode (Thursday June 10 2021)?
Rest assured there are no spoilers about whether the Dragons invest!
Dragons’ Den pitch: Where can I buy Rockstar Spirits?
The Dragons are served a selection of premium spiced rums by a confident drinks entrepreneur.
He has an unusual piece of family history to draw on…
His great-great-uncle was the first man to swim the Channel in 1875.
Manchester-based Tom Hurst enters the Den, offering a bespoke cocktail called The Dragons’ Daiquiri – made with spirits from a distillery in Guyana.
He’s looking to secure funding for his premium spirit business Rockstar Spirits.
He wants £25,000 in return for a two per cent equity stake in his business.
Where can I buy Rockstar Spirits?
Since its launch in 2018, Tom’s launched seven products.
Rockstar Spirits take premium single distillery rums and marry them with natural flavour combinations to deliver a stunning range of spiced rums.
These include Pineapple Grenade, Passionfruit Grenade, Grapefruit Grenade, Two Swallows Cherry and Two Swallows Orange and Ginger.
All products are available from Amazon, while selected drinks are sold in Booths, Morrisons, Majestic and Sainsbury’s.
We love the design of the bottles, never mind the taste of the booze!
Rockstar Spirits: what do the Dragons say?
Well, that would be telling!
We don’t want to give too much away about whether the five Dragons invest or not.
But we will say that Deborah loves the packaging!
One happy customer on Amazon says it’s the “best tasting overproof rum ever”.
Another gives it five stars, saying: “Randomly bought this after seeing it reviewed on This Morning.
“I was curious why Holly and Phil were going so mad for it, but I can see why!
“I’m usually a scotch drinker and never bother drinking rum (or shots!) but this is a game-changer.
“Way nicer than any spiced rums which just get stuck in the back of the drinks cupboard and forgotten about, you won’t forget this one!”
