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 Spice & Sea Salt Rum 
From £34.95 for 70cl (41% ABV). Available from AmazonMaster of Malt and The Whisky Exchange and Spirited Union.com.
Union 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.
