You can get it direct from the Geo F Trumper website, it's currently £31 for a 50ml atomiser but once you have that you can buy refills (come in plastic bottles) and start at 100ml for £25.
You can also but it at theperfectshave.co.uk for the same prices.
I know that trumpers used to do a tester pack where they'd send you 6 cologne vials, some shave cream samples and some moisturisers (skin foods lol).
Depending on where you live in the UK you may have somewhere to walk in and test them but im sure you can navigate your way round websites to find out locations. I'm in Glasgow and fortunately have a Perfect Shave store where I go for all my shaving kit and occasionally cologne.
The Trumpers Bay Rum is one of the best I've smelt from a UK company it's has an instant hit of cloves and a kinda boozy breakdown after that. I cant comment on longevity as I've only had it on my skin from a vial, The last time I was at the store where I could have spray tested it, I was en route to Penhaligons.
Hope this helps
P.S. I should add that you could get other brands of Bay Rum cheaper but I haven't tested any other than Trumpers.
