Union 55 Spiced Rum
A select blend of cask-aged British style rum, distilled in family-owned distillery in Barbados. We combine this with the finest natural spices from across the World. These spices add complex flavour and character through a delicate extraction process, which takes precisely 55 days to complete.
Distilled in a family owned distillery in Barbados. For the most part this rum has been aged in charred American oak, and a small portion in cherry casks. This gives the rum a deliciously smooth finish.
The master distiller uses a combination of traditional copper pot distillation and revolutionary distillation methods such as the vacuum column. The vacuum column is used to create a high quality and consistent distillate. It enables the distiller to create a very precise cut between the heads, hearts and tails of the run. This reduces the amount of impurities present in the final product.
We source our spices with two essential criteria; quality and taste. We take pride in going to great lengths to get the best. Thankfully we have help from our friends at Jacob Hooy, the oldest spice store in Amsterdam (and quite possibly the western world.) In the 270 years since it was founded, Jacob Hooy has grown to be the go-to place for quality and knowledge of all things spice related. Their wisdom regarding fruits, flowers, roots and seeds has been passed on from one generation to another and we fully trust them to provide us with the best ingredients.
