Spirited Union launches botanical white rum

Spirited Union Distillery in Amsterdam has launched its first botanical flavoured white rum. Union Lemon & Leaf Rum is the second expression from the Spirited Union Rum range following Union Spice & Sea Salt.

Both expressions are available to buy online from Master of Malt and Amazon.

Union Lemon & Leaf Rum is an agricole-style rum from Mauritius made with lemons grown along the Amalfi Coast. Spirited Union distils blue eucalyptus and  combines with Sri Lankan Highland black tea and the Mauritian rum. 

Founder, Ruben Maduro says: “Our quest is to create union between rum and the vast and colourful world of botanicals – giving birth to vibrant and exciting botanical rums. The Spirited Union Distillery is a botanical rum distillery on a mission to introduce a new approach to rum; one away from artificial aromas and sickly-sweet spirits.
“We have a flavour-first approach, evolving unique single origin rums with natural botanicals to create vibrant and exciting new tastes. Following a botanically infused cask aged rum, we’re proud to launch our botanical Union Lemon & Leaf Rum which, similar to gin, can be enjoyed with tonic, a botanical mixer or shaken in delicious cocktails. Inspired by my upbringing on the Caribbean island of Aruba, I wanted to add creativity and innovation to the rum category in a real and honest way. By re-distilling and infusing rums from across the world, with real natural botanicals, we have created an exciting new type of rum that looks beyond tradition.”
The Spirited Union Distillery in Amsterdam is the first botanical rum distillery to open its doors to bartenders and consumers. It has become one of the most popular visitor attractions in the city, offering masterclasses where you can distil your own botanically infused rum using individual copper stills.
