The Essence of Cuba from Havana Club: join us as we twitter taste the new range

ByThe Cocktail Lovers


We’re counting down the hours to 7.30 (GMT) 24th November. Why? This is the time we’ll be cracking open The Essence of Cuba, a new range from The Bitter Truth, inspired by Havana Club Añejo 7 Años. We’ll also have a bottle of the all-important Havana Club Añejo 7 Años on hand as well. Together with friends from the twitter-verse we’ll be tasting, mixing and talking about ways to enjoy this fabulous combination in simple serves and elegant cocktails. And we’d like you to join us.

The Essence of Cuba is made up of four small but mighty bottles: Coffee, Honey, Island Fruit and Aromatic Leaf, each crafted using traditional and modern techniques to enhance the natural flavours and aromas of Havana Club Añejo 7 Años. Just three dashes of one of the essences added to 40ml of Havana Club Añejo 7 Años and ice, creates a drink that is simple to mix yet beautifully complex in flavour. During the evening we’ll also discover how the range opens up all sorts of cocktail possibilities too.

We’ll be hosting the evening and on hand to talk us through the essences, the rum and the best ways for cocktail lovers to enjoy them will be Meimi Sanchez, Havana Club Global Ambassador, who will be taking over the Havana Twitter handle (@_HavanaClub) using the hashtag #HavanaClubTT.

Also joining us will be some top rum experts and cocktail aficionados including  Alastair Burgess, Happiness Forgets and Original Sin, and Sly Augustin, Trailer Happiness.

It’s going to be a fun and informative 90 minutes so please make sure you join in the conversation with this exclusive twitter tasting of The Essence of Cuba.

The Essence of Cuba twitter tasting with Havana Club and The Cocktail Lovers takes place 7.30 to 9.00pm (GMT) on Tuesday 24th November. Use @_HavanaClub and the hashtag #HavanaClubTT to join the conversation.

The Essence of Cuba range is currently available in 24 countries including Cuba, France, Germany, Greece, Spain and UK in 20ml and 200ml formats.
