J. Gow Spiced Rum is a pot Still style dry Spiced Rum with caramel and natural spices from around the world including two secret ingredients grown in Orkney. It can be sipped, enjoyed straight or on the rocks. It works wonderfully well in cocktails, and the underplayed sweetness gives it great potential for mixed drinks.
What to expect?
Light golden colour with notes of citrus fruits, pineapple, vanilla, spices, cloves, and cinnamon. The palate has a spicy character and a long warming finish.
Among its many cocktails is the Hot Buttered Gow - A hot and spicy cocktail perfect for feel-good winter evenings

2 tsp Unsalted butter

To make it strong…
