Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and The Spirited Union Distillery has unveiled a Pink Grapefruit And Rose Rum that’s perfect for romance. The new offering is the latest edition to the Amsterdam-based distillery’s slate of botanical Rum offerings.
Spirited Union Pink Grapefruit & Rose is a light Rum made by distilling the skin of blush-pink grapefruits to match the floral taste of Swazi rum. “The rum is enhanced with infused blood orange for a bitter-sweet sour taste and has been vapour-infused with fragrant garden rose petals and elderflower to give an intense floral aroma,” says the distillery.”The lush, open and highly fragrant petals work perfectly with honey-scented elderflower. Their sweet and tangy aromas create the perfect union of citrus and blossom.”
If you’re looking to make something pink for that special someone, The Spirited Union recommends adding 60ml Spirited Union Pink Grapefruit & Rose Rum, 0ml Fresh Lime juice, 10ml sugar syrup and 5ml Grenadine into a shaker filled with ice. Then shahe and strain into a chilled coupe glass and garnish with a rose petal.
If your special someone happens to be more of a Whiskey and chocolate person Woodford Reserve might have the answer. To celebrate the upcoming Valentine’s Day, the Kentucky distillery has partnered with award-winning chocolatier Phillip Ashley Chocolates to showcase the harmonious pairing between Woodford Reserve Double Oaked Bourbon and chocolate.
The twice-barreled Bourbon is known for its rich flavor profile full of sweet aromatic flavor notes, making it the perfect Whiskey for Valentine’s Day. To highlight those flavors, Woodford Reserve Assistant Master Distiller Elizabeth McCall designed a tasting guide that includes three different chocolate pairings that will accentuate specific characteristics of the Whiskey: white chocolate, milk chocolate with almond, and sea salt dark chocolate.
