Velvet Falernum Liqueur

John D. Taylor’s Velvet Falernum takes its name from the ancient Roman wine Falernian which was believed to be the crème de la crème of Roman tipples, this Velvet Falernum is also rooted in the bar culture of Barbados and is thought by many to be the original. This beauty is pure Barbados rum-based, sweetened with cane sugar syrup to luscious viscosity and infused with spices and lime juice. Velvet Falernum is a longtime staple item of resorts and bars in Barbados, and today for its use in Tropical, Tiki and Caribbean drinks such as the Rum Swizzle, Mai Tai, Zombie, Royal Bermuda Yacht Club and the Corn n’ Oil. It is made from an infusion of spices and lime juice into sugar cane syrup and Barbados Rum.
