The Spirited Union Distillery has launched a festive Sweet Orange and Ginger rum just in time for stocking your Christmas bar, and it sounds delicious.

Rum may not be the first spirit that springs to mind at Christmas time, but what's Christmas without a little spice? For creating warming festive cocktails there's nothing better than a good spiced rum.

The Spirited Union Sweet Orange & Ginger Rum is made with sweet oranges from Valencia & Curacao, giving citrus notes to cask-aged Jamaican rum. The citrus aroma and sweet flavour from the hand-zested oranges meet the flavours of fresh ginger root infused in the rum. It sounds like a match made in heaven.

The Distillery recommends drinking it with ginger ale, ginger beer or in rum cocktails, promising a tasty festive serve.

Spirited Union has also launched a Queen Pineapple & Spice Rum, made with sweet aromatic Queen Victoria pineapples and Panamanian Rum. This time balancing the sweetness with cassia wood and aromatic cinnamon, for some heat. This one should be matched with lemonade and is also a contender for Christmas cocktails.

The festive new rums are on sale now, from £27.50 (38% ABV) for a 70cl bottle. Available to purchase from Amazon, Master of Malt and House of Malt.
