The rum combines the profiles of three ‘non-traditional’ rum-producing countries: the Philippines, Vietnam and Ghana.
The name Union Rum references the marrying of rums from different producers and places.
The liquid is made with sugarcane juice harvested from Vietnam, which creates a highly aromatic and floral rum post-distillation. It has been blended with a pot still rum from Ghana and a molasses-based rum from the Philippines.
The rum has been made without additional colourings, flavours or additives, and is non-chill-filtered.
Holyrood said this results in aromas of overripe bananas with hints of nutty maple breakfast and incense, while juicy and spicy notes can be detected on the palate along with wood spice, citrus and stone fruits running through the centre.
