Vanichi Magazine curates 3 luxurious Afrohead Rum recipes.

Hailing from the Bahamas, Afrohead Rum is an authentic rum combining some of the best flavors of the Caribbean. Founded by Joe Farrell and Rum Savant Toby Tyler, this aged dark rum is newly available in the US. Whether you are sipping the 7-year or 15-year offering, you will find no added sugar or caramel colors to either blend. For this and so many other reasons, Vanichi is curating 3 luxurious Afrohead Rum recipes.

First, the libation begins with its distinctive packaging. Afrohead’s gorgeous goddess-like logo is a majestic tribute to Bahama’s proud culture and strong women. That lineage of women includes the grandmother of Toby Tyler’s children. She was crowned the first Miss Bahamas in 1963.

The rich flavor begins with sugarcane molasses sourced from the West Indies. It’s then fermented with a 100+ years old proprietary Trinidadian yeast. This creates Afrohead’s banana and toffee base. It’s then aged in charred bourbon oak barrels that will be used only once. They house the rum until the amount of years indicated on the bottle. Vanichi enjoyed the 7-year along the Baja California coastline. This rum is smooth, full and wonderful neat, on the rocks or mixed.

Now, we have some beautiful recipes perfect for the wintry months ahead. Scroll below to discover more.
