Caramel & Coconut Rum Bombo by The Real Rum Company – supplied by Page’s of Lyndhurst.
A Caribbean rum blended with caramel and infused with a hint of coconut. You sort of know what to expect, but it is very different.
Made in Newquay, Cornwall by the Real Rum Company, Bombo Caramel & Coconut is a flavoured rum based drink combining the exotic flavours of coconut, caramel and Caribbean rum. A seductively smooth drink, with coconut on the nose to begin followed by the deeper smell of caramel. The palate is smooth and luscious, mouth coating with a hint of coconut on the finish. Drink on its own or over ice.
The recipe is inspired by one of the oldest mixed rum drinks in the world originating from an 18th century pirate recipe where rum was mixed with sugar and spices. It was also known as Bumboo or Bumbo. This was to help disguise the rather rough taste of the rums being produced back in those days, thankfully a problem we don’t have to contend with in this century!
