Premium Guatemalan Rum cut to proof with coconut water for a richer, more authentic tropical sipper.

Danielle and Mike Zighelboim ("Zig" for short) are a brother/sister entrepreneurial combo — born in Miami to Central American parents. In 2013 they started smuggling coconuts back into Miami, branding them with their logo as fancy, drinkable party-favors. This became a thriving business. Restaurants and bartenders started pouring Rum shots into the coconut-water-filled shells for a quick cocktail just like they do in Guatemala and El Salvador. So, starting last year the dynamic duo created a unique take on this Spirited tradition.

Coconut Cartel Rum starts with a blend of Guatemalan Rums aged in American oak — arranged through their partnership with Destiladora de Rones y Alcoholes Sur America (DARSA). But this is not just some "flavored" Rum beverage. Where some Coconut Rums infuse coconut or add coconut flavorings, Coconut Cartel Rum uses 100% pure coconut water to cut the Rum from barrel-strength to proof at 40% ABV. We’ve never heard of that before and it really makes a difference. The flavors feel more rich, authentic, and alive.

What does Coconut Cartel Rum taste like?

The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Coconut Cartel Rum and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.

We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.

Rum used to be accepted as form of currency in Europe and Australia, a practice we should probably bring back into fashion.

Ratings & Reviews
Evin
Evin,
Definitely a sipping rum. Mixing this rum with anything would cause it to become instantly lost because it's subtle flavors.

Sharon,
This is not an overly flavored coconut rum used in watered down frozen drinks. It is a uniquely lovely sipping rum. Very smooth, the coconut water does not overpower the rum. Nice on ice, or neat. No mixer required. Really enjoyed this rum straight.

William,
The only issues with this rum is that it's too smooth. Seriously I could drink the whole bottle in one sitting. Great flavor and the Coconut water adds a really nice finish. Just a one cube and enjoy, responsibly.

Rodolfo,
Really smooth with a hint of coconut not overpowering the caramel and smoothness of the rum. Great for summer days with just a big cube of ice. Highly recommend it.

Amazingly smooth best chilled served neat but mixing is great too
 
Jarvis
Jarvis,
I was really shocked with this rum. It’s mellow and smooth and has nice legs in my Glencairn. I prefer my rum neat and this is one that you can definitely sip with no added ingredients. On the nose I got a light coconut aroma and on the taste I got coconut but it’s not overwhelming, Vanilla, and on the finish I get a little bit more coconut but it rolls into a light chocolate profile. Totally satisfied with this. A worthy buy and one that will be a staple in my bar.
