Back in the day Rum was considered a remedy—a universal life hack making Man’s hardships a bit more bearable. Today too, Man suffers because life is still bittersweet. But by accepting it as it is, we can put an end to the hardship and start enjoying this speedboat trip through murky waters.
And it this this way of thinking, this positive twist on both sides of life, that inspired us to create Larga Vida XO Rum, our first ever own Rum. Its silky texture reminds us of time, and its complex sweetness with bolts of bitterness reminds us of... well, LIFE. It is here to make every moment - bitter or sweet - sink in.
But wait, there's more! We created Larga Vida to be enjoyed in various settings, in different moments and for a whole palette of mind-sets. Here are four moods perfectly paired with accompanying Rum drinks and proper suggestions from our side on how to enjoy Larga Vida XO Rum 2018 edition.
