Kōloa Rum Co. debuted its Kōloa Kaua'i Cacao Rum in partnership with Kaua'i’s Lydgate Farms. The chocolate-flavored rum incorporates the finest Hawaiian-grown cacao from Lydgate Farms, a fifth-generation Kaua'i family farm recognized for the chocolates it makes. Kōloa Kaua'i Cacao Rum is created by steeping Lydgate Farms’ roasted cacao nibs in Kōloa Kaua'i Gold Rum from nine to 18 days, depending on the batch. During the process, the rum extracts natural flavor and color from the cacao to offer a distinctive chocolate rum with notes of rich, creamy mocha highlighted by subtle spice, it says.
