The islands have a pretty cool history. Celebrating a legacy of freedom Bambarra Rum is as unique as the Turks & Caicos Islands. Inspired by one of our original settlements in picturesque Middle Caicos, it takes its name from the home of the African settlers who were delivered to our shores by the winds of fate aboard the wrecked slave trader Trouvadore in 1841. A life of freedom was theirs upon landfall, at a place they called Bambarra Beach. From there they planted the seeds of a nation. With them came traditions and culture we still enjoy today - such as the colorful Masquerading party, intricate craft weaving, and the fine art of smoothly blended sugar cane rum. Enjoy Bambarra and the unique legacy of freedom and tradition it celebrates. http://www.bambarrarum.com/ I poured 2 oz of the coconut rum over ice. So nice.
