One of favourite distilleries has just released not 1, not 2, but 3 new bottlings! The folks over at Snowdonia Distillery in North Wales have just given us 2 new variations of their El Rumbo Rums and 1 new addition to their Marsette Liqueurs. The distillery, who of course is responsible for Foragers Gin, put an incredible amount of time and heart into each of its spirits. They have taken multiple awards across the whole lineup, most recently a Silver for the Y Bēt Chocolate Vodka. The small team there really does an incredible job at bringing you the best that Wales has to offer.
In addition to the incredible gins they put out, the distillery team likes to venture into the more fun and unique side of spirits. As shown in their El Rumbo lineup by bringing in aged Cuban rum, then letting the rum rest in freshly emptied cognac casks. Now creating an Anejo and Coconut versions of their El Rumbo!
Now their Marsette Liqueurs are absolutely brilliant for the dessert cocktails we’ve been making around here. The Monsoon Coffee liqueur is incredibly moreish and makes a stunning espresso martini! So with the addition of the new Chocolate Essence liqueur it is going to make for some fun in house experimentation!
So, lets introduce the 3 new arrivals:
El Rumbo Premium Cuban Anejo Rum is an expression that benefits from our Solera aging process at Snowdonia. Aged for three years in Cuba to then be transferred into our fresh cognac casks at Snowdonia.
An aroma of classic desserts – sticky toffee pudding and vanilla fudge, this premium spirit is perfect to enjoy with a squeeze of lime and a Cuban cigar.
Nose: Toffee apple, vanilla fudge, hints of cocoa, cognac aromas.
Palate: Soft, mouth coating, a cognac warmth with lingering apple and pear finish.
El Rumbo Cuban Coconut Rum is an expression of natural flavours from the tropics.
Fresh Madagascar Coconut and Cuban Sugar cane combines aromas of fresh coconut milk, pineapple, and a refreshing sweetness.
This superior mixer can be enjoyed as a classic mojito or float it to enhance the flavour of a daiquiri.
Nose: Coconut husk, Madagascan vanilla, candied pears, coconut milk and sugar cane.
Palate: An ice cream texture with hints of walnuts and almonds. A palette coating, coconut milk finish.
Marsette Peruvian Chocolate Essence is an enhanced spirit perfect for sipping over ice or enjoyed in cocktails.
The Single Estate Peruvian Chocolate allows for a light experience of 100% cacao with its nutty nature.
Nose: Dark chocolate, a clean break of fresh cocoa, slight hint of banana and freshly roasted walnuts aromas.
Palate: Soft sweetness of vanilla and cream, powerful dark chocolate and a long, viscous, warm finish.
So head over to pick up a new release or 2, so you have some incredible spirits for your summer cocktails!
Until next time.
