Jumbie Coconut Splash Flavored Rum
Pure molasses Rum from St. Maarten is blended with bright coconut flavors creating a super and indispensable item in your Tiki bar. We were blown away by the quality being offered at such a modest price and it has inspired some new summer cocktails with a hint of coconut. The two greatest assets of this flavored Rum/Liqueur are its genuine coconut flavor and its vibrant palate that is not at all cloying as so many coconut Rums can be.
The Jumbie brand began as an idea in the mind of Ralph Ledee. Ledee’s family created St. Maarten’s first and largest spirits and beer distribution company. The Jumbie name is an ode to the caribbean folklore of “Jumbies” or spirits that would possess anyone who supposedly drank the secret recipe. The Jumbie brand grew out of a need for a collection of high quality flavored Rums that are the backbone of Caribbean drinks and punches. The sound concept needed a distiller to make it a reality so a serendipitous partnership was formed with Varela Hermanos, S.A., the producers of Ron Abuelo. Presently, Jumbie offers five expressions that feature a base of quality Caribbean Rum with a splash of natural tropical flavors.
Brilliant, crystal clear. The aromatics are vibrant and unmistakably coconut offering both fresh and toasted coconut meat with fresh juice and subtle hints of cocoa beans. The palate echoes the nose delivering a sweet but incredible, well-balanced burst of pure coconut flavors with flanking notes of citrus that keeps it clean and very refreshing. Medium-bodied with gobs of rich coconut flavor and perfect balance thanks to a dose of fresh acidity.
How to Serve
You can simply enjoy the Jumbie Coconut Splash on the rocks but it really comes alive in cocktails. It pairs beautifully with: Rum, Tequila, tropical fruit juices, chocolate, ginger, and tamarind.
