To help fund our start-up, we’ve auctioned the first 55 bottles to our bartender friends. Thanks to these guys, now known as the ‘first 55’, we’ve been able to kick-start Union 55, and start selling it to bars.

Starting from scratch

Starting from scratch, it has taken us over 18 months to perfect a recipe, that would result in smoother, well-balanced spiced rum.  Our mission to bring a real and honest approach to spiced rum led us to extracting flavour from over 30 different spices, and ending up with a rum that contains only 5. Inspired by the ways of which top michelin star chefs and world-class chocolatiers use salt to enhance flavours in dishes, and balance sweet flavours. We’ve tried to create a completely new take on spiced rum.

Be part of our history

If you like quality rums as much as we do, we invite you to own your very own first bottle of Union55. In order to give us the strength we need to successfully launch our brand, we’re selling the first 55 bottles in a special edition ex-army munition case. This symbolizes the ammunition your purchase will give us to hit the market. In short; a special edition bottle costs €100,- of which €45 is the standard price for a bottle, and €55,- will be the premium for being one of the first55.

Order one here by sending us an email with your contact details.

Thanks for being first.


We are extremely proud of our first 55 members, now officially owning one of our f first55 bottles.
