Smooth, cask-aged Barbados rum inspired by the ways in which gin distillers make use of botanicals, Union 55 uses a unique 55-day maceration process, taking great care to extract their flavours. Using a composition of cardamom, clove, vanilla, cacao and almond, Union 55 then add a touch of organic Añana sea salt to the rum. Its purity and mineral content ensure it perfectly complements the rum’s natural sweetness.
Appearance: Dark Amber
Nose: Cardamom and clove with bright notes of fruity molasses.
Taste: Gentle spice with mellow notes of cacao and vanilla.
Finish: Saltwater taffy followed by a honeyed nuttiness.
Overall: Incredibly smooth and delectably nuanced.
A great choice if you’re in the market for a rum with a difference. Union 55’s unique take on spiced rum makes it ideal for mixing with cola or ginger beer. Sure to please those with a sweet tooth.
If the person you’re buying for is a fan of the Union 55, you could also try Foursquare Spiced Rum, Green Island Spiced Gold or Pusser’s Spiced.
Rum is a spirit made exclusively by fermenting sugarcane or its bi-products, these being molasses and sugarcane juice. There are no real rules when it comes to rum production making it a very large and varied category. The process of making this spirit is a combination of fermentation and distillation.
