Under The Light Of Darkness Cocktail

Darkness is quick to take over the light and when the shadows approach, it becomes clear where evil lies.

This Cocktail takes into account the simplicity of complexity and the light within the darkness, let’s meet our antagonist and protagonist for this Glass of Bubbly Cocktail.

The Sparkling Wine – Fiol Prosecco

Fiol Prosecco was created by a group of friends who grew up drinking Prosecco, after enjoying a wide range of Proseccos, they never found what they believed embodied what a Prosecco truly was meant to be, so that’s why they created Fiol, to fill the gap in Prosecco and to share it with the rest of the world.

Fiol Prosecco DOC Extra Dry – Tasting Notes

Aroma – “Soft, ripe green fruits, green pears, apple blossom, and a touch of foliage on the aroma.”

Flavour – “Fizzy, with a young character of succulent green fruits, green apples, green pears, a touch of yellow fruits, honeysuckle and green garden characters to finish on the palate.”

The Rum – Diablo

A devilish Producer by the name of the House of Rum has three quality Rums in their Diablo series, beautifully packaged and ready to be enjoyed by those wishing to make a deal with the devil, we’ve taken their Diablo White Rum to help us create our Under the Light of Darkness Cocktail, but before we do, let’s give it a taste.

This blend has been created from un-aged Jamaica Rum, 2 to 5 year old Trinidad Rum and 2 to 3 year old Rum from the Dominican Republic.

Aroma – “Green characters take the aroma for a ride, with green apples and green pears, a delicate touch of herbal gardens, green citrus and a touch of creamy vanilla on the aroma.”

Flavour – “A sweet touch of ripe green apples and herbal gardens, that then combine with pineapple, banana, cinnamon, nutty characters and a smooth vanilla finish.”

I reached out to the owner of House of Rum, David Howarth to ask him a question, ‘You Have A Great Love For The Caribbean And It Heavily Influenced Your Decision To Start House Of Rum, What Was The Experience Like For You When You’d Produced Your First Bottle Of Rum?’

“Well, you could argue that this has been a 30 year journey since the first moment I stepped on a beach in Antigua to bottling our first rum in 2021. In reality, House of Rum took two years of hard work prior to that first bottle being born so It was a brilliant feeling to know that we were finally able to share our story and our amazing rums with so many people.” – David Howarth
