Rum Isn't Just For Pirates! Why We Love Rum And The Best Aroma Pairings To Enjoy With It!

Rum Isn't Just For Pirates! Why We Love Rum And The Best Aroma Pairings To Enjoy With It!

It's the moment we've all been waiting for!

It's finally that special time of the year when we come together to celebrate the smooth, bold, and oh-so-delicious spirit that has been charming our taste buds for centuries - it's National Rum Day! 

There's something inherently special about rum that sets it apart from all the other spirits out there. Maybe it's the hint of Caribbean breeze that lingers in every sip or the soul-warming feeling it brings on a chilly night. Whatever it is, rum has been making waves in the drinks industry and our hearts for generations!

Let's take a moment to toast to the deep history of this world renowned spirit. From its humble beginnings on the sugar plantations of the Caribbean to its international fame as the lifeblood of countless cocktails, rum's journey is as colourful as its flavours. 

So, what makes rum so special? Well, it's all about the versatility! Unlike some other spirits that can be rather picky with mixers, rum knows how to party with just about anything. From the classic Mojito to the daring Dark and Stormy, rum takes centre stage and shines like the superstar it truly is. 

Let's not forget the incredible diversity within the world of rum itself. Whether you prefer the buttery sweetness of aged rum or the spicy kick of white rum, there's a rum for every taste bud out there. And if you're feeling adventurous, the flavoured rums will blow your mind! Coconut, pineapple, mango - the possibilities are endless, and they're all here to make your taste buds dance with joy.

When it comes to aroma pairings, there are several fantastic options that can complement the rich and diverse flavours of rum. Here are some Flavour Blaster aroma pairings to enhance your rum-drinking experience:

  1. Vanilla: Vanilla is a classic aroma that goes hand-in-hand with the caramel and toffee notes often found in aged rums. A burst of vanilla aroma can accentuate the sweetness and add a comforting touch to your rum cocktail.

  2. Citrus: Citrus fruits bring a zesty and refreshing element to rum-based drinks. Using a citrus aroma bubble as a garnish can brighten up the overall flavour profile and balance the richness of the rum.

  3. Spices: Warm spices such as cinnamon and nutmeg complement the spicy and sometimes smoky characteristics of dark and spiced rums. Experimenting with our cinnamon and nutmeg aromas will bring out the spicy flavours in your favourite rum.

  4. Coconut: Coconut and rum are a match made in tropical heaven! The tropical, creamy aroma of coconut pairs wonderfully with the smoothness of rum, particularly coconut rum. Try adding a coconut aroma bubble garnish to your cocktails.

  5. Coffee: The rich, roasted aroma of coffee can intensify the deep flavours of dark and aged rums. Adding a splash of cold brew coffee and coffee aroma garnish to your rum concoction can create a delightful blend of flavours.

  6. Tropical Fruits: Passion fruit complements the fruity and tropical character of many rums, especially if you are using a fruity mixer. Add a passionfruit aroma cloud to enhance the fruitiness in your cocktail.

  7. Ginger: The spicy and zingy aroma of ginger works exceptionally well with the warming characteristics of rum. Try serving your rum under a cloche of ginger aroma for an extra kick.

  8. Oak and Smoky Notes: If you're enjoying aged or oak-barrel-aged rums, consider enhancing their smokiness with our smoke aroma. This combination can create a unique and sophisticated drinking experience
