Immaculate Conception


Although warm seasons seem a natural fit for rum drinking in general, fall months are when cocktail creativity can truly show the depth and complexity of dark rums. Extra Old Mount Gay rum takes the house recipe to further complexity and depth with more time spent in old bourbon barrels.

This cocktail emphasizes all that is warm about aged rum while embracing tastes to be enjoyed in a cool climate. The oak-encouraged spicy structure makes for soothing sipping in combination with the firmer flavour of artichoke-based Cynar and sweet suggestion of premium Brazilian banana and Malagasy vanilla. Built upon tropical tones, Immaculate Conception inspires indulgence for an autumn eve.
