Baron Samedi Spiced Rum Launch Event

Gruppo Campari has introduced a new spiced rum to its rum portfolio – The Baron Samedi Spiced Rum.  Last week, I had the pleasure of attending the Baron Samedi launch party.

Baron Samedi Spiced Rum

The Baron Samedi Spiced Rum is dark in colour and high in proof.  It is a robust, yet smooth-finishing rum with natural ingredients including vanilla, cocoa, cinnamon, and the signature ingredient, the Haitian vetiver spice.  Vetier is a perennial bunch grass that adds fragrant earthy and sweet woody notes to the rum.

Baron Samedi

The Baron Samedi has existed in Haitian Vodou culture since the 18th century.  He is well-known for his outrageous and disruptive behavior, filthy jokes and his fondness for rum.  At the event, Jace Kim did a live painting of the Baron Samedia.  He worked on this beautiful piece of art for two hours!
