Spiced rum gets sophisticated makeover in Live or Let Ginger

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      Spiced rum may be best associated with a certain captain you slammed back—most likely with distaste—during high school, but Baron Samedi is reintroducing the spirit into the spotlight with a sophisticated twist.

      The first spiced rum on the market to use traditional Caribbean pot-still rum, Baron Samedi’s iteration ($28.99 for 750 mL) goes down surprisingly smoothly thanks to a rich medley of vanilla, cocoa, and Haitian Vetiver, an earthy blend of botanicals that lends the liquor a woodsy note.

      Try it in the tropical Live or Let Ginger: a combination of ginger beer, lime, and Angosturra bitters, topped with coconut flakes and cinnamon sprinkle. Find Baron Samedi Spiced Rum at BC Liquor Stores.
