Modified Molten Lava Cake
Puget Sound Rum Company
On the banks of the Sammamish River in Woodinville, Washington, there’s a craft distillery bringing a little Caribbean flair to the Puget Sound. Founded as one-half of a distilling venture between long-time friends, Puget Sound Rum Company is making rum with the very best sugarcane South America has to offer.
Hand crafted at the 47th parallel. This rum is distilled from organic panela sourced from a small family farm in Colombia. Rum 47 is single distilled through our Jamaican style pot still, designed to capture the rich flavor of the panela. This is a heavy white rum, full of flavor and character. It makes a perfect classic daiquiri or mojito.
This White Rum has sweet notes of coffee, burnt caramel, and fruit, making it the perfect addition to a chocolate lava cake!
