The Product

We combine our flagship Honey Shine Amber with whole baking spices in barrel to create a BC craft expression of a dark-spiced rum. This seasonal turned staple will be sure to have you singing “Yo-Ho!”

The Process

We ferment wild-gathered BC honey into a dry mead, distill it twice, and mature it our Ancient Grains ‘Alternative Whisky’ barrels with vanilla, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, black pepper, allspice, and star anise.

Note: A small amount of distillers caramel is added for colouring only.

Tasting Notes

A beautiful balance of cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, and liquorice. A warm mouthfeel and a smooth, lingering finish that dances on the tongue and longs for another taste.

How to Sip

This was made for a Dark ‘n’ Stormy. You can also enjoy Black Bear in our signature Polynesian Outlaw cocktail, a classic Shaft, or in a festive Eggnog Flip for the holidays.
