Soma Brown Butter Rum Bar, Jamaican Cacao + Kinsip Dark Waters Rum
When butter is warmed gently over slow heat it bubbles and browns to a reach, toasty, nutty substance known as Beurre Noisette. The process takes butter down a dark path well traveled by rum and chocolate. This deeply complex (in flavor and history) trio, go together like old friends having a good time, mingling effortlessly.
Soma's friend Desmond - farmer, philosopher and madman (all the right traits for growing incredible cacao) - owns Bachelor Hall Estates, left to him by his grandfather. His 1,000 acre farm is fed by 2 natural fresh water springs is in a unique location in the valley between the spiritual & majestic Blue and John Crow mountains.
The cacao seedlings were originally transplanted from Trinidad in the 1800s growing naturally without any fertilizer. On their last visit, Soma's owners hiked up to the highest point on the farm - the breathtaking beauty of the sea, forest, and mountains surrounded them in every direction.
The rum is "Dark Waters", a single barrel release by Kinsip, the samll and mighty distillery in Prince Edward Island.
