The earthy flavors are combined with fresh herbal notes and spice. Botanical rums like this are an excellent replacement for gin and pair perfectly with tonis for an easy sipping springtime drink.

Brixton Distillery – Market Row Botanical Rum
This UK distillery takes rums from the Caribbean and infuses botanicals that represent the melting pot that is London. The base is a blend of premium Jamaican, Bajan and Dominican rums. The resulting blend is then infused with Kenyan black tea, Nigerian hibiscus and red rose from Pakistan, all sourced from Brixton Market just around the corner from the distillery.
Check out Thrasher’s Green Spiced Rum and Boukman Rhum which were featured in the FaQ on botanical rum. Both of these rum are also fantastic representations of the style.
