Amazon White Rum is a new release in the clear spirits category. What makes Amazon’s offering unique, apart from the very reasonable price, is that it has such a crisp flavour that you could almost call it the “Grey Goose of Rum” in that you could leverage its clean after-taste in a variety of drinks in which you would use vodka as well.
Have you ever wondered what makes white rum light and what makes gold rum dark? Rum is made by a process of ageing the liquor in casks of a variety of materials, and those materials determine the rum’s final colour. Light or “white” rum is fermented in steel and as a result it has a light, refreshing, and even slightly sweet flavour. Gold/amber or “dark” rums are aged in oak, which produce a more pronounced flavour along the lines of caramel or burnt sugar.
Most individuals prefer mixing white rum and sipping gold rum. As such, we like to enjoy Amazon White Rum in the traditional Pina Colada — it’s almost as if this spirit were created solely for that purpose. Because there is no burn or aftertaste to Amazon White Rum, it allows the flavours of pineapple and coconut to really shine. Make our preferred recipe for a Pina Colada by adding 1 1/2 cups of ice, 1/2 cup diced fresh pineapple, 2 ounces of pineapple juice, 2 ounces coconut cream, and 3 ounces Amazon White Rum to a blender and blend until smooth and creamy
To set your drink over the top and impress your party guests, garnish with wide flakes of toasted sweetened coconut and thin slices of lime. You surely cannot find a better light rum product for the price of Amazon White Rum. Consider Amazon the next time you want to treat yourself to a taste of the tropics.
