The Spirited Union is a botanical rum distillery, on a mission to introduce a new approach to rum, one away from artificial aromas and sickly-sweet spirits. We have a flavour first approach working with nothing but the finest natural botanicals to create vibrant and exciting new tastes.
You can enjoy our real and honest botanical rums – Lemon & Leaf, Spice & Sea Salt. – with tonic, a botanical mixer or shaken in delicious cocktails.
From an early age, I learned that life tastes better when you work with the best possible ingredients…Growing up on the Caribbean Island of Aruba, one day I looked around and was disappointed to see so many artificially flavoured and sickly sweet rums.
This ignited a mission to introduce a new category for rum; Botanical Rum. By re-distilling and infusing rums from across the World with real natural botanicals, I want to create an exciting new type of rum that looks beyond tradition.
Union 55 and its unique recipe of botanicals with organic sea salt is the botanical rum which started it all. It was first released in the streets of Amsterdam early April ’17. Recently we re-branded Union 55 to Union Spice & Sea Salt, and take pride still using the same unique recipe.
The Spirited Union is build on the believe that 1+1=3 and that there is strength in Union. Thanks to the Union of 251 investors we managed to put botanical rum on the map and open our 300m2 distillery in Amsterdam.
In 2019 we released a range of new innovative botanical rums and opened the doors to the first botanical rum distillery in the World for bartenders and consumers to come and exlore.
