This Brazilian Style Rum is made from evaporated cane juice with a hint of molasses to round out the sweetness and add an element of caramelization.  Notes of brown sugar, toasted carmel and hints of citrus and pineapple will create a rich flavor to any rum cocktail.

Enjoy the Spirit of Rockford!

The Midway

2 oz         GVD Silver Rum
