Rum Chata Cream Liqueur-Perfect for The Holidays

| December 11, 2012

rum chataRum Chata is a relative newcomer (first shipped in 2009) to the crowded Rum market, but this creamy liqueur-style drink is a perfect complement for the holidays. This delicious concoction uses five times distilled Caribbean rum along with real, made-from- scratch Wisconsin dairy cream (they can say that because the distiller is actually located in Pewaukee, Wisconsin), with a touch of cinnamon, vanilla, sugar and other flavors.

Sales of this particular rum drink have been quite robust in 2012, with a total of two million bottles sold in the first nine months, more than double the previous year. Master blender and founder, Tom Maas, is certainly right about this being a great gift this holiday season, as this bottle disappeared rather briskly.

Awards given to the drink have included the Beverage Information Group’s Rising Star Brand Growth Award in 2011 and 2012, and the Impact 2012 Hot Prospect Award.

With an alcohol content of 13.75%, the retail price is $19.95 and is available in all 50 states. That price includes a cocktail shaker that they encourage you to use when mixing Rum Chata drink recipes which include the Pumpkin Pie Martini, Nutchata, Cinnamon Bun and the Oatmeal Cookie. Also popular during this time of year is the addition of hot chocolate to make RumChocolata; with eggnog to make a RumChata Eggnog Latte and coffee for a Cappuccino Rum Chata.
