While venturing through the vast Tropical Rainforest, you stumble across a hidden civilization, it turns out that the group of people is made up of many expeditionaries through the ages, choosing to stay in the paradise they have created, and upon their time living life to the max, they have perfected the flavours of the Tropical Cocktail and you’re just about to get a taste.

The Sparkling Wine – Rebula

The farm of Rebula is located in Brestovica, near Komen in Slovenia, in a small village on the Karst Wine Road, close to the Italian border. The farm dates back to 1900 and shifted its main focus to viticulture and oenology in 1982.

The whole estate is cultivated by the members of the Rebula family: Dušan, Vida, Martina and Roman Rebula, extending on an area of 5,2 ha, with their vineyards occupying 1,8 ha, where 5000 vines are planted: 1000 vines of Malvazija, Vitovska Grganja and Sauvignon, along with 4000 vines of Refošk from which Teran, the most important product of the farm, is produced.

The Rum – Labourdonnais

The Domaine de Labourdonnais Château is a historic destination in Mauritius, a real jewel of the Mauritian heritage, built in the year 1856, the Château de Labourdonnais was inhabited by a Mauritian family for over 150 years.

It was only in 2000 that they added the Distillery to start producing their Rums with a collection of fresh sugar cane juice from the sugar cane mill.

Following the distillation at 89%-90% abv and the 6-month resting period, the rum is then watered down and bottled at 40% abv, remaining true to an Agricole rum, the Classic rum offers all the notes and flavours of fresh cut sugar cane juice with herbaceous notes and mellow sweetness.

Rum Labourdonnais – Classic Craft Rum – Tasting Notes “Smooth, clear rum, mellow sweetness of sugar cane and notes of herbal gardens, with freshly cut grass and nettles on the aroma.”
