Representing Mauritius as a whole, Solera 5 is a blend of various single distillates from the island, refined in an elaborate process which then reaches its harmonious and aromatic flavour after maturing.
“Absolutely love this. This stuff is great, tried it in a little bar in Altrincham called Riddles!! had to go and buy myself a bottle for home!
I can see why it won awards- and it's sold out in Riddles so that says it all. Try it you won't be disappointed “
Comment in MASTER OF MALT 2015
"Incredibly rich with plenty of wood notes combined with roasted walnuts and high in malt. Very smooth on the palate, with the richness subsiding to become, well just rich! Lots of fresh malt, warm fudge, damp oak and sticky toffee on the palate that produces an incredibly long, warm and mouth-watering finish.
Nothing like the Caribbean styles, this Mauritius based rum is a cracker and one for sipping on its own for sure." DRINKS ENTHUSIAST.COM
Sometimes, being a gentleman has its advantages! Our fabulous Gold of Mauritius carefully stirred in our signature classic, the "Gold-Fashioned" (Thank you for the guys at Apotheca in Manchester for this drink)... It is perfect for our rum, and a perfect match to our cigars!
- 2 shots Gold of Mauritius,
- 3/4 Shot Tawny Port,
- 2 sugar cubes, - 3 dashes of Chocolate and/or Walnut bitters.
Stir and strain over a massive chunk of clear ice, garnish with an orange peel... Sit down, light the cigar and indulge! Welcome to heaven!
30ml Gold of Mauritius rum
30ml Freshly brewed coffee
10ml Orgeat syrup
5ml Litchquor vanilla essence
20ml Fresh cream
Add all ingredients except for the cream in a shaker filled with ice and shake until ice cold. Strain over cubed ice and float the cream over the finished drink. Garnish with three coffee beans (one for love, one for health and one for wealth!).Hint: Easier to use pre-chilled coffee and whisk the cream a little to aerate it.
