Found: A subtle, spicy new grown-in-Canada rum

While many spiced rums are overly sweet and overly dark with added caramel or not-so-subtle cinnamon, this new Canadian version is uniquely natural. Light coloured and lightly spicy, it’s made with six indigenous plants that grow in Quebec’s Chic Choc mountains on the Gaspé peninsula. They include Peppery Green Alder, Pine Forest Spikenard, Witherod Berries, Lovage Root, Wild Angelica and Sweet Gale (also called Bog Myrtle) — the same stuff that goes into Beau’s wonderful Bog Water.
