Dry Spiced Cuban Rum
Some bottles are just so achingly cool, you know you just have to own them. That’s exactly what happened with Black Tears…
The Cubans are an emotional bunch, they don’t hold back. When they feel, it’s the gut-wrenching, tear-jerking, heart-rending kind of feel usually reserved for soap operas. Black Tears is an homage to that true passion. It was inspired by the Cuban song ‘Lagrimas Negras’, which tells the story of young lady who sobbed into a vat of rum, filling it with her liquid sorrow. So, as you can imagine, it’s some emotionally charged stuff.
Black Tears is made by The Island Rum Company, who went into partnership with the Cuban government, allowing them access to the legendary rum brand Vigia. The base is a silver dry rum, which is infused with mysterious spices, coffee, cacao and ají dulce. The latter is a chilli much-loved in Cuban cuisine. Related to the habanero, but with a much milder and smokier flavour, it adds a little peppery spice and fire to the blend. Black Tears is the first dry spiced Cuban rum to be released onto the global market, and if its glorious bittersweet combo of mocha and spice is anything to go by, it won’t be the last, but it will be hard to top. Simply mix with cola or ginger beer and lime, or get creative because the cocktail possibilities are absolutely endless. Oh, there is one more thing, it’s been emotional.
