Falernum is idigenous to Barbados, where Velvet Falernum is a longtime staple item of its many resorts and bars. The sweetness, spice and almond character of this rum-based liqueur provides weight and texture to classic rum and wine punches. Today, Falernum is a staple for tropical drinks such as swizzles, Zombies, and other Tiki drinks. Try the island favorite with 2 parts aged rum, 3 dashes Angostura and a squeeze of lime. Add to wine and orange juice for a quick, delicious Sangria. John D Taylor’s Velvet Falernum is considered by many as the original Falernum, and is today produced by famed rum distiller R.L. Seale Ltd. Full details
