Selvarey Rum

cacao-2Award-winning and premium Selvarey Rum, which recently launched here in Southern California, is an LA-based boutique spirits company with two aged Panamanian rums – Selvarey White and Selvarey Cacao. Both rums are crafted with the distinct goal of being sipped neat or on the rocks, and of course, they’re fantastic in cocktails.

The Cacao, which is a five-year-old cacao-infused rum won gold in the flavored rum category at this year’s Miami Rum Renaissance Festival, as well as the prestigious Chairman’s Trophy at the 2014 Ultimate Spirits Challenge.  Tasting Panel Magazine gave the Selvarey White, a blend of three- and five-year aged rums, an outstanding 94 rating, and the Selvarey Cacao a 95—the highest scores ever awarded by the publication to a white and flavored rum, respectively.
