This season, curl up by the fire at your favorite winter retreat with The FACUNDO Bishop and The 8th Day – two après ski-inspired cocktails to help you defrost from your snow-filled outdoor adventures.
The flavors featured in The FACUNDO Bishop blend together seamlessly when heated, as the rich taste of Port wine is accentuated by the spice of cloves and the citric bite of orange. The FACUNDO Bishop is finished with FACUNDO EXIMO, a mix of medium to heavy bodied rums blended and then aged in fine oak barrels for over a decade.
The 8th Day is an easy-to-mix twist on the popular cold weather beverage, the chai latte. This spiced drink is made with HAVANA CLUB Añejo Clásico and warmed coconut milk, which adds a tropical flair to the seasonal cocktail. HAVANA CLUB Añejo Clásico is a dark rum with oaky hints of vanilla and almond, as well as fruity notes akin to pineapple and apricot, creating a robust and velvety finish.
Give them a mix for yourself.
