Our home is a buzz with preperations for the holidays, and I’m sure you know the feeling right now. We are currently readying ourselves for a few holiday get-togethers with friends and family and we want share a delicious adult holiday drink at the parties.
This year we’re using Diplomation Mantuano Rum. This blended rum is aged for up to eight years in white oak casks, which were previously served to age burbons and malt-whiskey. This delcious rum combines column, batch kettle and post still distillates elaborated from sugar cane molasses and honeys.
