If you're a fan of Tiki-style cocktails, then you know the importance of having quality falernum. An infusion of Barbados rum, sugar cane syrup, fresh lime juice and spices, Taylor's Velvet Falernum is bottled paradise. Break out the mini umbrellas and whip up a Rum Swizzle or a Corn 'n Oil and let vacation begin.
Falernum - what a name, eh! No it's not a cold symptom, or a medical diagnosis. It's a rum-based liqueur with sugar and spice and is used to make mixed drinks which are really, really nice. It takes its name from the ancient Roman wine Falernian which was believed to be the crème de la crème of Roman tipples, but John D. Taylor's Velvet Falernum is also rooted in the bar culture of Barbados and is thought by many to be the original. This beauty is pure Barbados rum-based, sweetened with cane sugar syrup to luscious viscosity and infused with spices and lime juice. It's a vacation in a glass, no passport or waiting in security lines required.
