Debbie’s Halloween Picks

The Baron Samedi Spiced Rum

The Baron Samedi is a stylish and sophisticated Spirit of the Dead with ties to Haitian voodoo culture. The Baron’s spiced rum is a carefully crafted, supernatural spirit, made with high-quality rums from the Caribbean with a dash of Jamaican pot still rum for added depth of flavour.

Deep amber with notes of nutmeg and hazelnut, the Baron Samedi Spiced Rum delivers full-bodied flavour with an incredibly smooth finish worthy of the most notorious of spirits. Summon the Baron at your Halloween get together with a Bloody Hallows Eve Punch.
