Sweetdram Smoked Spiced Rum 700mL
A fascinating rum created by the creative team behind Escubac, now ensconced in their own bespoke distillery in Edinburgh. For this quintessential cocktail rum, Sweetdram create a blend of quality Caribbean rums-from Guyana, Jamaica and Barbados-and infuse it with grains of paradise, chamomile, lime leaf, fennel and cardamom. Lapsang and organic figs, which are warm-smoked at the distillery, impart the smokiness in the drinks name. A warning: Unlike many other 'spiced' brands, Sweetdram don't add a single iota of artificial flavour or sugar!
As with all things Sweetdram, the spirit mixes REALLY well. It goes like a champ with ginger beer and fruit juice (e.g. apple, rhubarb), and makes a phenomenal Daiquiri or Rum Old Fashioned. And not a pirate or sea monster in sight!
