Dutch distillery Spirited Union launches new botanical rum expressions

Botanical rum specialist the Spirited Union Distillery in Amsterdam is launching three new expressions in the UK.

The Queen Pineapple & Spice, Sweet Orange & Ginger, and Pink Grapefruit & Rose flavoured rums will roll out internationally in November and December, having already gone on sale in the Netherlands.

They are the latest in the distillery's range, which launched in 2019 with Spirited Union Spice & Sea Salt and a rare white botanical rum, Spirited Union Lemon & Leaf.

Spirited Union founder Ruben Maduro said: "We are continuing our quest to produce rums with real flavour, creating union between the vast and colourful world of botanicals to produce a range of exciting naturally flavoured rums.

"Having lived and worked in Aruba in the Dutch Antilles, I looked to warmer climates for inspiration for our botanicals for these new expressions. Our Queen Pineapple & Spice has a taste of the tropics and the Sweet Orange & Ginger has a bite of ginger for Jamaican heat.

"We're really proud to have been able to launch three new expressions during these difficult times. It's great to see the love that's out there already in Amsterdam where our fully sustainable, solar-powered distillery and brand home is located. We produce and package our rums in the most sustainable way possible."

The three new Spirited Union botanical rums are all 38% ABV and have a recommended price of £27.50 for a 70cl bottle. They are available through the Spirited Union website and Amazon.
