Chic Choc Spiced Rum is made in Canada and produced with six indigenous spices -Peppery Green Alder, Pine Forest Spikenard, Witherod Berries, Lovage Root, Sweet Gale Seeds and Wild Angelica. This creates a spicy flavour profile with hints of sugar cane and cinnamon, complemented by a subtle peppery tone. This rum is the only artisanal rum using Nordic spices grown in Quebec.
It does have a very unique flavour profile compared to other spice rums. It’s pretty good as a mixer in drinks.
One of the drinks I made with the Chic Choc Spiced Rum is the Gaspésien Libré, which is a rum and coke with lime. I didn’t have 1642 Cola, so I made a substitution with Coke.
