The Bullion Coconut

The Bullion Coconut Cocktail

The exotic coconut, full of life and character, quenching your thirst and subduing your hunger, it has been a wonderful addition to the cocktail universe, and here’s a new addition to the list, The Bullion Coconut, crafted with fresh coconut milk, coconut rum and traditional method sparkling wine from New Zealand.

The Sparkling Wine – No.1 Family Estate

No.1 Family Estate was created in 1977 by Adele & Daniel, they chose the name No.1 Family Estate in recognition of the many ‘firsts’ in New Zealand wine they had achieved over the years while working on their first venture, Cellier Le Brun.

They released their very first Cuvée No.1 on Bastille Day in 1999 and in 2012 their No.1 Assemblé was the first wine in New Zealand to be labelled ‘Méthode Marlborough’ in place of Méthode Traditionelle.

Rum – Bullion

Bullion Spiced Rum has burst into the drinks world in a golden way, currently offering four flavours in their range: Bullion Gold Original, Bullion Java Banana, Bullion Coconut and their latest product Bullion Passion Fruit.

Distilled in Demerera and blended with all natural flavours and spices sourced from all over the world, their rum is distilled twice at one of the best Guyanese distilleries and then a 3rd distillation takes place in their Bullion vault to blend this silky, smooth coconut rum.

Bullion Coconut Cocktail Tasting Notes

Aroma – “A blend of sweet, smooth coconut and sweet spicy ginger, along with crisp green apples, toast and oak from the sparkling wine.”

Flavour – “Smooth and silky, with a delicate sweetness, the coconut rum upgrades the coconut milk with a luring warmth, enriching the creamy coconut characters, the ginger syrup and powder gifts a tingly spicy display backstage, with the sparkling wine adding mature oaky and toasty characters, enriching the experience, helping to display every aspect of the coconut, from the milk, kernel and exocarp.”
