Sadler’s Peaky Blinder Black Spiced Rum is named after the Peaky Blinders street gang from the later 19th/early 20th Century. Various spices have been blended to accentuate the flavour of Sadler’s black spiced rum. As such, this expression features helpings of vanilla, clove and flamed orange peel notes. Aromas of orange, vanilla and pineapple power through for the senses.
The Peaky Blinders were a criminal gang based in Birmingham, during the Victorian era. Members of this gang wore a signature outfit including the famous peaked flat caps.
A number of violent street gangs such as the Blinders, the Sloggers and the Birmingham Boys became highly organised and had vast amounts of political control and social power. The most famous of all the gang leaders was probably Billy Kimber.
Billy Kimber was a relative of the Sadler family and the gangs back in 1900 regularly visited the Sadler’s pubs. As a result, the brand has dedicated the Peaky Blinder Spirits range to the gang, consisting of an Irish Whiskey, a Bourbon Whiskey, a Spiced Dry Gin and a Black Spiced Rum.
