Coconut Cartel announced the launch of its newest creation: Coconut Cartel Blanco. 

This extraordinary blend, meticulously curated by sibling-duo Dani and Mike Zig, is poised to disrupt the white rum category with authenticity and innovation, the company says. 

Coconut Cartel's dedication to excellence and creativity shines through in every sip of this remarkable white rum blend made of a base of 100% estate grown sugarcane juice, with no added sugar or flavoring, it says. Rooted in the rich tradition of Latin rum-making, Coconut Cartel's craftsmen carefully blend unaged pot still rum sourced from the distillery's own sugarcane farms in the Dominican Republic, with one-year-old column still rum aged in American White oak ex-bourbon barrels, it notes.

“I'm captivated by the diverse and intricate nature of artisanal pot still white rums, particularly cane spirits like Mexican Charanda, Brazilian Cachaca and Rhum Agricole,” said Dani Zig, co-founder of Coconut Cartel, in a statement. “This fascination inspired us to craft our own white rum blend, aimed at acquainting enthusiasts and curious consumers with the array of funky flavor profiles in a delightful and accessible manner.

“At the heart of our bespoke creation lies our unique coconut water proofing method, a vital component to ensuring our blend's unrivaled smoothness and approachability,” Zig continues. “Leveraging coconut water's rich mineral and salt content, we mitigate any harsh bitterness or ‘burn’ typical of high proof rums, while enhancing the vibrant flavor nuances exclusive to these high-ester spirits. The outcome? A white rum that retains its bold character while delivering an exceptionally smooth and gratifying drinking experience.”

Coconut Cartel Blanco boasts complex aromas of fresh cane, white pepper, and tropical fruits like unripe banana and dried pineapple while delivering a distinct minerality on the palate that leads to a clean and crisp finish, the company says. The 46% ABV Coconut Cartel Blanco is ideal as the foundation for tropical cocktails, such as the classic Daiquiri comprised of rum, lime and sugar, it notes.

Packaged in a 750-ml bottle, Coconut Cartel Blanco can be purchased online and at select retailers across the United States for a suggested retail price of $28.99
