The spirits of Christmas (part 2)

ByThe Cocktail Lovers



Think traditional Christmas flavours like marzipan, drunken dried fruits, nuts, a pinch of spice, bursts of orange and naughty but nice dark chocolate – that’s what you get when you take your nose to a glass of Ron Zacapa XO Solera Grand Reserve Especial. This is the sort of product you keep out of reach, cracking it open for special occasions. And we can’t think of a better time to get acquainted with a bottle than this time of year…

Round up your nearest and dearest (only the appreciative ones mind) and get ready for a taste sensation. Sweet, spicy and fruity with a welcome hit of smooth, rich alcohol this one will make you feel mellow from your head down to your toes.

We’ve got an extra maturation stage in French oak barrels to thank for that awesome intensity – enjoy it neat from your poshest glass and give it the respect it deserves.

Ron Zacapa XO Solera Gran Reserva Especial Approx £80. Available from and
