Introducing the World’s first botanical rum canned cocktail range.
Walking around town outside our distillery in Amsterdam we got frustrated by being locked out of bars. It’s when we got inspired as we looked for a decent ready to drink cocktail to enjoy on the go. With pretty much all the ready to drink cocktails found in stores being overly sweet and artificially flavoured, we’ve created a range of canned cocktails that crack the code of having a night out – at home and provide a simple but better-tasting choice… (while avoiding the complexity and hassle of DIY mixing…)
With our Botanical Rum range at heart, we’ve spent the best part of a year developing a range of canned cocktails that unite natural botanical (herbs, spices, fruits, etc..) extracts and juices with Single-origin rums without the use of artificial preservatives, sweeteners, or colour. In other words, we’ve created a range of canned cocktails that are 100% spirit-based 100% natural, with less sugar and full of flavour! By working with the finest natural botanicals and producing botanical rum in the spirit of sustainability, we’ve created this well-balanced and skilfully blended refreshing botanical rum cocktail. Whether sipped in the park, at a dinner party, or after a long day at work, we’ve put in all the work for you to enjoy a delicious cocktail on the go.
So go on and crack a can while they’re ice-cold!

What’s different about it?
100% Spirit-based (Botanical Rum)
To create a botanical rum cocktail, we figured to use our botanical rums as a base. While the majority of ready to cocktails on the market today are wine- or malt-based, we’ve decided to go 100% spirit-based and guarantee the taste of rum in our cocktails. Not something you’d expect from a pre-mixed canned cocktail nowadays.
100% Natural ingredients
Our ready to drink range has been made following the same love, passion, and ethos as we put in our botanical rum. Its why we’ve only used natural fruit and botanical extracts and no artificial preservatives, sweeteners, or colouring.
Refreshing Premium Mixers
During the lock-down, we’ve worked on creating our own premium mixers to be used in bottled and canned cocktails one day. Using Fresh ginger and Kola nut syrups to create our own Ginger ale, Ginger beer and Kola (That’s Cola with a K). We managed to create a natural tasting canned cocktail.
Spirited Union Distillery Team; Uniting Bartending with Science
The Spirited Union Distillery team is headed by our two female distillers with two extraordinary skillsets; Marjolein Pot, who is our head distiller, has a background in distilling and microchemical sciences while our Sharai Rodriguez has a background in distilling gin, genever and a long history working in some of the best mixology bars around. Following over one year of trial and error by both, we’ve managed to balance out a bartender’s approach to creating drinks and preserving its natural taste in a can using a scientific approach.

To create this botanical cocktail which represents the perfect union between pineapple and ginger, we’ve used our delicious queen pineapple & spice rum as a base for this refreshing canned cocktail. At its base, our botanical rum consists of the taste of fruity queen pineapple. Its complex fruity notes combined with tropical freshness unite perfectly with its base; a cask-aged Panamanian Rum. To add to its refreshing tropical taste we’ve balanced the natural sweetness of pineapple by infusing this botanical cocktail with ginger, cassia wood and sweet spice.
To create this delicious, botanical cocktail, we’ve used our Sweet Orange & Ginger botanical rum as a base and mixed it with a refreshing premium ginger mixer. This botanical cocktail is made by re-distilling a cask-aged Jamaican rum with bright citrus notes coming from a selection of Valencia & curacao oranges. These hand-zested oranges add a rich citrus aroma and delicious sweet taste. For a touch of spice, we’ve added a note of heat and spiciness by infusing this botanical cocktail with fiery ginger root. The freshness in ginger is rich and has notes of zesty citrus and spice which perfectly complements the sweet taste of sugar cane molasses.
To create this delicious, canned cocktail, we’ve used our Pink Grapefruit & Rose botanical rum as a base and mixed it with a refreshing premium rose lemonade mixer. This botanical cocktail starts with the re-distillation of the skin of blush-pink grapefruits for a pleasingly semi-sweet taste and is balanced out with a slightly sweet infusion of blood oranges which creates a rounded bitter, sweet and sour taste. The cocktail has an intense floral aroma that comes from a vapour infused fragrant garden rose. These lush, round, open and highly fragrant petals work perfectly with the honey-scented elderflower blossom.
To create this delicious, organic botanical cocktail, we’ve used our Organic Coconut botanical rum as a base and mixed it with a refreshing premium kola mixer. This organic cocktail starts with the tropical flavours in our Belizean rum. We’ve infused it with sundried organic coconut flakes which are toasted to create a slightly nutty sweet and creamy flavour. For a rich texture and well-rounded mouthfeel, we’ve added organic coconut water to bring down the rum to perfect mixing strength When the coconut is toasted it takes a deeper flavour, woodier with a hint of vanilla. It’s why we added a touch of Madagascan vanilla and Peruvian cacao to create harmony between these delicious flavours. To add a burst of nuttiness we’ve created a kola nut syrup at the base of our premium kola mixer. Its unprocessed flavours create a lovely complex finish.
Whether sipped in the park, at a dinner party, or after a long day at work, we’ve put in all the work for you to enjoy a delicious cocktail on the go.
