Spirited Union Distillery

08/09/2020 A quest is to create a Union between the vast and colorful world of Botanicals

“An independent  distillery in Amsterdam, a vibrant cocktail bar, freshly made drinks, 27 copper stills dripping rum and the delicious smell of botanicals”

We are on a mission to create Union between the vast and colourful world of Botanicals – giving birth to vibrant and exciting Botanical Rums.

Making a delicious drink is a bit like cooking, combining textures and tastes to create something exciting and memorable. Spirited Union Distillery works with fresh botanicals and produces real flavour, by saying no to sickly sweet and artificial aromatics. Brought together by a shared belief that spirits and botanicals should be delicious and fresh.

The Team

We source single-origin rums and botanicals from the best regions in the World. We create a union between the complex flavours of spirits and botanicals to produce new world rums that are bold, balanced with unapologetically fresh tastes.

Spirited Union Distillery believes in a hands-on approach to creating spirits, it’s why each and every bottle is made by hand in our distillery in Amsterdam.

We produce in the spirit of sustainability and are on a mission to make our supply chain as sustainable as possible. Working in a solar-powered distillery, eliminating single-use plastic, working with sustainable partners.

Spirited Union Botanical Rum - Lemon & Leaf:

Spirited Union Botanical Rum - Lemon & Leaf

We’ve distilled our Agricole-style rum with delicious zesty lemons grown along the sun-filed Amalfi coast in pursuit of an unrivalled fresh taste. These lemony flavours have been united with the delicate earthy tone of kina bark together with Sarawak pepper & Sarsaparilla root for a complex spicy finish. Our ambition has led us to pioneer uncommon freshness by distilling the finest blue eucalyptus leaves to create a balance of refreshing lemon and herbal flavours. When combined with UVA Highland black tea, our Mauritian rum’s distinctive grassy citrus notes produce a unique light & minty Union.

We’ve taken great care to infuse our rum with the finest botanicals from the land. Through a maceration process which takes 55 days to complete we extract delicate flavours from our Guatemalan cardamom to bring out bright citrus and floral notes. Madagascan cloves and vanilla for our sweet spice aroma. Peruvian cacao for a deep richness and moreish honey-nut finish.  To enhance taste and flavour we’ve infused our rum with a pinch of Añana sea salt. Its great purity and high mineral content ensure it perfectly complements the rich flavours of our rum.
