Rich, velvety and luxuriant, hot buttered rum is a warming winter classic. But when you switch up the spirit for Stone Pine Distillery’s Dead Man’s Gold spiced rum, it evolves to become something so much more.
Hot buttered rum has been around for a very long time. In the States, it’s been a popular winter drink since the 1650s. However, it’s never really taken off in bars.
Perhaps the drink’s soothing smoothness would lull lively patrons into a less thirsty stupor. Probably not a drink for a night out.
But imagine cuddled up somewhere cosy, the chills of the evening pushing against the windows with one of these at your elbow.
