Two cocktail recipes using the newly released Bacardi Oakheart Rum. Bacardi Oakheart? Its new… according to the press release:

Bacardi turns 150 this year and as part of the celebrations it has added a spiced rum to its rum family. The Bacardi family’s Master-Blenders spent five years developing Oakheart to ensure they got the recipe just right and trialled it in key UK regions before launching it nationally this month.

What does it taste like?
Straight from the heart of charred oak barrels, BACARDI OAKHEART is a smooth, oaky spirit with a hint of smokiness. The unique velvet-like smoothness means it tastes great on its own or mixed with coke.

How is it made?
Bacardi’s Master-Distillers use a unique blending process that begins with the mellowing of rums in charred, American, white oak barrels to give the base an oaky flavour. Once they have created this perfect base they add a range of expertly chosen flavours, including cinnamon, nutmeg and honey before filtering the liquid to ensure that only the highest quality rum makes it into the famous BACARDI bottles. The result? An exceptional spiced rum spirit drink that brings a new twist to the spiced spirit drink category.

  • 50ml Bacardi Oakheart rum
