Just when you thought Copalli Rums couldn’t be more delicious, we’ve expanded our portfolio to include the unique Copalli Cacao in the US. (The lucky folks in Europe have had access to this sumptuous sip for some time.)
Copalli Cacao is sustainably produced at the Copal Tree Distillery, and like the other Copalli Rums, is made only from clean, pure ingredients – non-GMO heirloom sugar cane, yeast, cacao nibs grown and freshly roasted at the distillery, and pure water collected from the canopy of the Belizean Rainforest.
According to Ed Tiedge, Copal Tree Master Distiller, “We take our delicious Copalli white rum, place it into a tank to rest with 100% organic, freshly harvested cacao nibs. Over several weeks, the cacao nibs infuse a rich chocolate flavor and aroma into the rum, which is then redistilled to create a smooth, finished product – unlike anything on the market.”
Don’t let the chocolate fool you. Copalli Cacao is not a traditional chocolate-flavored liquor. “Belizean chocolate has distinctive berry notes,” notes Julie Reiner, Global Brand Ambassador and renowned mixolo-gist. “For that reason, while Copalli Cacao will blend beautifully with traditional chocolate pairings such as coffee, nuts and caramel, it is also delicious with fruit forward-flavors such as Meyer lemon, fig and blackberry.”
Copalli Cacao is best enjoyed straight, on the rocks or in cocktails (check out our featured cocktails). Copalli Cacao will be available in Florida, California and New York. It will also be available online in early September with shipping to 38 states.
