What do you get when you combine the flavours of gin, rum and barrel-aged spirits, plus spices like cinnamon and nutmeg? Gin Rummy of course! Gin Rummy is a spirit like no other – taking our favourite aspects of all of the above and blending them together for a smooth, seasonal spirit that will warm your soul on even the chilliest of days!
Now available in a giftable 375 mL bottle, Gin Rummy makes every festive gathering even better. Following in the tradition of juniper gins and navy rums, Gin Rummy’s unique and delicious elixir sets a new standard for winter spirits. Artisanally made and hand crafted by Eau Claire, its flavour is reminiscent of spiced fruit cake, making it a deliciously spicy barrel-aged spirit.
Let’s get creative with it – Gin Rummy can be subbed in for gin or rum in your favourite cocktails.
