Rosewood Bermuda has announced a special new partnership with Bacardi Limited with the launch of the ‘Bacardi Rosewood Bermuda Exclusive Blend’. A unique and exquisite rum, the blend celebrates Bermuda’s spirit of choice, which was at one point in history a by-product of the sugar trade and so valuable that it was used for currency.
The ‘Bacardi Rosewood Bermuda Exclusive Blend’ has been expertly crafted using an entirely hand-made process and was carefully selected by Serge Bottelli, General Manager of Food and Beverage Operations, John Lake, Head Bartender at Rosewood Bermuda with Bacardi Master Blender Jose Gomez. The rum was created with the most discerning rum drinkers in mind and is a perfectly balanced blend of medium to full-bodied rums which have aged undisturbed in highly toasted American white oak barrels for a minimum of eight years.
“We are proud to partner with Bacardi Limited to create this special blend for our guests and members,” says Sascha Hemmann, managing director at Rosewood Bermuda. “It was important for us that both Bacardi and Rosewood Bermuda come from the same roots here in Bermuda, and that we were able to tell that story through this unique blend.”
Bacardi’s special blend for Rosewood Bermuda is dark gold with a reddish hue, and has a complex aroma featuring notes of tropical fruits, sweet spices, nuts and vanilla over a clean background of white oak. This results in a smooth but rich taste, with a long and expansive finish and round mouth feel, reminiscent of long years of aging in the warm tropical climate.
“Visiting the Casa Bacardi facility in Puerto Rico and being a part of the process of making this rum was incredibly special,” shares John Lake, Head Bartender at Rosewood Bermuda. “I believe we were able to create the perfect flavour profile for the most discerning rum drinks. Guests will be able to enjoy the rum either neat or on the rocks as well as in some of our signature cocktails like the Rosewood Bermuda Old Fashioned.”
The Rosewood Bermuda Bacardi Exclusive Blend was produced in a limited quantity of 360 bottles, and with a custom design, each bottle can be considered a one of a kind collector’s item. The Rosewood Bermuda blend will be served exclusively at the property at Tucker’s Bar, The Conservatory Bar & Lounge, The Bar at Sul Verde, and The Beach Club.
