For #TalkLikeaPirateDay , we set out to discover a Pirate’s most treasured thing….RUM!
We spoke to Sandals Resorts Food and Beverage Trainer Troy King on why the Caribbean produces such special rums. “When you start with great molasses, sprinkle in a little of the Caribbean culture, then let it mature in oak barrels stored in the warmth of the islands - you have a recipe for excellent rum,” explains Troy.
It might be easy to miss, but across all Sandals Resorts, our beverage specialists craft bespoke cocktail menus to show off the finest rum from each Caribbean island.
Baja Mount Gay Rum (seen above) is "bold and balanced, with hints of vanilla" which is why its paired with Fresh Rosemary when it's served at #SandalsRoyalBarbados. “Appleton, in all of their expressions we have, comes out to meet you. You know you are drinking a Jamaican rum when you have Appleton,” says Troy of Jamaica's famous Rum, which appears on the menu of all of our Jamaican Resorts. “The use of copper stills along with Jamaican molasses and greets you at every taste.” Read our blog post today in our link in bio to hear more about Sandal’s Rum cocktails.
And just so you know, none of this treasure is buried under hidden costs – all of our rums are all included at any Sandals Resorts.
So, there’s really no excuse not to #TalkLikeaPirate today or any day at Sandals!
