Zaya Gran Reserva 12 Year Old Rum Review

post icon

I don’t know of many distilleries that move from one country to another. But when thinking of roving distilleries, a couple of famous ones come to mind. The Bacardi Family fled Cuba after Castro took control. Luckily they already had a distillery in Puerto Rico for tax reasons, so they moved the bulk of the operation there. Castro got to keep the original Bacardi distillery, where they now the Caney and Santiago Brands. Angostura Bitters … Read more

I love, love, love True Blood. I have read all of the books, watched the TV shows and even attended True Blood fan events through the Paley Center (for all of you True Blood fans out there, Vampire Eric and Werewolf Alcide look as good in person). Imagine my delight when we received a couple of Tru Bloods in the mail. And just in time for Halloween!

Rum Old Fashioned

Inspired by a delicious rum that brings to mind a scotch, today’s drink is a Rum Old Fashioned. We’ve reviewed Brugal 1888 and found it to be a sipping rum complex enough to please whiskey aficionados. So why not try it in the ultimate whiskey drink?

Adding a little sugar and bitters to Brugal 1888 draws out the sweet notes while maintaining the rum’s deep smoky and spicy flavors. I highly recommend you get your … Read more

The Innate Coolness of Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum

This week is Fleet Week in San Francisco. For those of you unfamiliar with Fleet Week, basically San Francisco is invaded by a part of the US Navy and Marines. There are sailors everywhere. The Blue Angels fly around town. The bay is stocked with submarines and other aquatic vessels. And it’s pretty cool!

Fleet Week brought to mind our recent infatuation with Sailor Jerry since the man behind the rum was an actual Naval … Read more

It’s not often that we run across women distillers. In the case of Zacapa Rum, the master distiller is a wonderful woman named Lorraina. Believe us, Lorraina makes some mean rum.

Chocolate-Coconut Rum

post icon

Dark chocolate and coconut are an amazing combination. You can bring those flavors to your cocktails with this simple infusion. The bitter cacao nibs in this recipe bring the tantalizing chocolate aroma without adding more sweetness. The coconut rum brings in a hint of sweetness and tempers the intensity of the cacao.

You can use this as the base for a Manhattan-style drink made with sweet vermouth and orange bitters, or along with some vodka … Read more
