Anon Spiced Cane Spirit 

Firstly drum-roll please … this is my 100th alcohol-free review! What better way to celebrate than by reviewing a classic alternative to rum – Anon Spiced Cane Spirit.

A couple of months ago I reviewed Anon’s English Garden (an alcohol-free Pimms alternative) which scored pretty well. So I was excited when this bottle was delivered. If you’ve not come across Anon before they are a small UK-based alcohol-free spirit creator and currently have three types on offer – English Garden, Bittersweet Aperitifr and the Spiced Cane I tried today.

Designed to be used as an alternative to rum and ideal with a mixer, Spiced Cane combines a unique collection of flavours and botanicals to recreate the warm and sweet flavours of a run. I had it mixed with Fever Tree’s ginger ale over some ice.

The question is, is this alcohol-free rum worthy of a place on Jack Sparrow’s table? Well, you’ll just need to read the review below to find out.

Is Anon Spiced cane spirit any good?


There is definitely some resemblance to a classic rum flavour with background notes of ginger, cinnamon and vanilla. For me it is a little too sweet and misses the mark when it comes to the background fiery touch an alcoholic rum would bring to the table; perhaps a dash of chilli could have helped here. Overall though when ginger ale was added to the mix it made for a very tasty and refreshing mocktail

Aroma & Appearance

The aroma is very reminiscent of a spiced rum and you can certainly pick out the vanilla and ginger notes. In the glass, it has a light amber colour.

Bonus points

Anon’s spirits are very accessible for most people given they have zero alcohol, are gluten-free and vegan friendly and relatively low in sugar. Not really available in supermarkets, your best bet to purchase Anon Spiced Cane spirit is via an online specialist.
