One of the great things I love about participating in Food & Wines Festivals, is not just sharing and meeting people but that I get to discover and taste, fabulous new culinary delights. Such is the case with Selvarey Rum…smooth, decadent and delicious!
In much of the world, rum is worshipped as the pinnacle of civilization. Yet too many Americans associate the sugarcane spirit with cartoon pirates, cruise ship blenders and hangovers. Selvarey is determined to change what you expect from your rum. It has been nurtured, distilled, and aged in the jungles of Panama with the mission of evolving your spirits. Enjoy responsible!
Selvarey White Rum
Unlike many white rums, Selvarey has been crafted with the distinct goal of being fine enough to sip on the rocks. Yet the notes of custardy vanilla and citrus make it delicious in simple cocktails, like Selvarey with a splash of grapefruit juice or ginger beer for a Moscow Mule upgrade.
Selvarey Cacao Rum
Selvarey Cacao is the culmination of a lifetime of rum making by the world’s foremost
Maestro Ronero. He selects a rich five-year-old rum whose inherent character is brought out by the infusion of the finest locally sourced chocolate. Restrained in sweetness yet full of deep chocolatey notes, this is the most elegant flavored rum around.
