Proof66 Notes

Bear Hug Wild Berry rum is a combination of "luscious" cranberries and blueberries plus the "essence" of pomegranate, raspberry, and blackberry. There are cranberries floating at the top of the spirit and blueberries sinking to the bottom of the spirit, both imparting flavor and color.

Bear Hug infusions are specialty products that a Barbados rum and then infused with all-natural flavors. In many cases, the actual flavoring agent is still in the bottle, continuing to flavor the spirit as it sits in the bottle. Note the label stating "bottled at 21%" [our emphasis] since the continuing infusion can adjust the final proof when poured. They are intentionally lower proof spirits relative to other rum products.

Innovative Liquors is the company behind what used to be 267 Liquors and now Bear Hug Infusions. Their inspiration for their infused spirits is said to be their travels to exotic locations. The bottle designs are inspired by rain drops. The Falic Group acquired 267 Infusions from Boz Spirits in 2008.

I love the color and I love the look of the bottle. I love the all-natural infusion and seeing the berries floating in the bottle. The smell is just a bit medicinal and the finish is just a touch bitter. But this can spruce up a cocktail very nicely--particularly in a cosmopolitan, which polishes the drink up nicely. But by itself, its missing a little potency and may be a bit pricey as just an additive in a cocktail.

A little astringent but that comes from the cranberry I think. Very much tastes like the berries in the bottle

This one is close to the cranberry but not quite as good. There is a little off-taste that drops it one star.
