Five Rivers is a dry spiced rum with no added sugar, made in a London gin distillery in a similar way to gin by distilling rum with Indian botanicals; cardamom, coriander, cassia, ginger, and clove.

Punjab, translates to mean the 'land of the five waters', a reference to the area, which sits in the foothills of the Himalayas, being traversed by five rivers: The Jhelum, Chenab, Ravi, Sutlej and Beas.

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 29/03/2021


Crystal clear.


Suggestive of Delhi's Khari Baoli spice market with alluring clove, coriander, cassia, and cardamon.


Dry and attractively spiced with enlivening coriander and warming clove to the fore.


Clean, long and spicy.


Five Rivers promises and delivers "spices of the Punjab" in a superbly clean and dry rum. Five Rivers is a dry rum that has a lot in common with dry gin and indeed it's very tasty when mixed with tonic and makes a very pleasant change to a G&T.
