Wicked Dolphin announces new Florida Spiced Rum

Florida craft distiller Cape Spirits today announced the addition of a new expression to their portfolio of artisan spirits: Wicked Dolphin Florida Spiced Rum.

The company produces Wicked Dolphin rums in Cape Coral, Florida. The spiced rum is available now through Republic National Distributing Company, as well as at their visitor's center and distillery in Cape Coral.

Cape Spirits took their time to thoughtfully develop a Spiced Rum that is distinctively reminiscent of Florida. Made with premium Florida sugarcane, the new blend offers sultry notes of Florida oranges and honey, accented by a vanilla undertone and a fresh-ground baking spice finish. They also add some aged rum to give it a smoother and more mature flavor profile.

"We really take pride in using as many fresh Florida ingredients as possible," says JoAnn Elardo, owner of Wicked Dolphin Florida Rums.

"At the distillery, we enjoy a good Rum and Coke so, we are very happy to present our Florida Spiced Rum to our loyal fans because we know that it enhances the traditional Rum and Coke flavor. Our Florida Spiced Rum has a creamy, warm vanilla taste, along with a spicy citrus finish that creates the perfect combination for enhancing this time-honored beverage. We call it a "Wicked Coke."

Wicked Dolphin's hand-crafted white rum earned a gold award in the RumXP tasting competition at the 2013 Miami Rum Renaissance Festival, a notable achievement among many great white rums from around the world in the competition. The product is enjoying a warm reception in the Florida market.

Cape Spirits expects their Florida Spiced Rum to be available widely throughout the Sunshine State in 2014.
