The classic daiquiri is one of the simplest and pure drinks of the times. It’s a drink that has the perfect balance of sweet, sour and spirit. This dark rum or aged version utilizing mango pit syrup, showcases the deep, rich and warm, tropical notes of a fresh mango which tend to bring out the caramel notes of an aged rum with ease. The faint tropical essence perfumes the nose with sweetness and the fierce power of the age rum leaves a warm smoky aftertaste.
