About Union Rum

About Union Rum 

Union Rum Lemon & Leaf
Union Lemon & Leaf Rum, the world’s first botanical white rum, is an Agricole-style rum from Mauritius made with lemons grown along the Amalfi Coast. Spirited Union distills the finest blue eucalyptus leaves to create a balance of refreshing lemon and herbal flavours. When combined with Sri Lankan Highland black tea, the Mauritian rum’s distinctive grassy citrus notes produce a light & minty union. The flavours have been united with the delicate, earthy tone of kina bark together with sarawak pepper & sarsaparilla root for a complex spicy finish. 

Union Rum Lemon & Leaf RRP: From £29.95 for 70cl (38% ABV).

Union Rum Spice & Sea Salt
Union Rum Spice & Sea Salt is a smooth cask-aged Barbados rum infused with five delicate spices, including Guatemalan cardamom, Madagascan cloves and vanilla for a sweet spice aroma. Peruvian cacao adds a deep richness and moreish honey-nut finish. To enhance both the taste and flavour, the rum is infused with a pinch of Añana sea salt. Its great purity and high mineral content ensure it perfectly complements the rich flavours of the rum. 

Union Rum Spice & Sea Salt RRP: From £34.95 for 70cl. ABV: 41%
