Hot VS Cold – Which Way Do You Rum?

Chic choc rum-2

Today it’s a battle of the beverages. On the left we have a warm and soothing rum concoction that is sure to warm you up as the weather cools down. On the right, a sweet treat that packs a punch. Both beverages use a uniquely Canadian rum made from spices harvested in the rugged Chic Choc Mountains in Quebec. To produce the rum’s rich and smooth body they use six indigenous spices that create a spicy bouquet with nuances of sugar cane and cinnamon, complemented by a subtle peppery tone. All of these things add up to one perfect Rum for all of your holiday concoctions.

Tell me which one you will try first!
