Belizean rum distillery, Copalli has unveiled today a new cocoa-flavoured expression
The new spirit, Copalli Cacao, is a single-estate, organic rum infused with cocoa nibs from plants grown by the Copal Tree Distillery, in southern Belize.
The rum is said to show an intense nose of dark chocolate, as well as notes of ripe berries. The company suggests it should be drunk straight, on the rocks, or in cocktails such as a Chocolate Espresso Martini.
'Copalli Cacao is based on our award-winning Copalli White Rum, naturally infused with proprietary, organic cacao and cut with soft rainforest canopy water,' said Jon Welch of Copalli Rum. 'The fresh and fruity cane-juice rum works in perfect harmony with sumptuous dark chocolate notes. We think the results are pretty special and we can’t wait to share this unique release with rum lovers and bartenders alike.'
Only 2,000 bottles of Copalli Cacao have been produced from the estate's latest harvest.
