Cheers to National Rum Day
Since today is National Rum Day, Société Perrier felt it necessary to pay homage to this fantastic libation. So put down that mojito for just a second so we can give you the rumdown on all things rum.

For true Rum enthusiasts, L.A.’s Caña Rum Bar is a members-only club boasting an extensive list of specialty rums, cocktails and a top-notch cigar selection to boot. Inspired by the complexity and versatility of the liquor, Caña’s specialty drink, Brazilian Necktie, comprises of Cachaca (Brazilian rum) infused with chilies, sugar, lime juice, muddled cucumber, sea salt and black pepper.
For one of the finest and purest brands on the market, you can't go past Rhum Clément, the world’s leading producer of A.O.C. Martinique Rhum Agricole, this year celebrating its 125th anniversary. Produced by the finest selection of sugarcane in the French West Indies, Rhum Clément is renowned for it’s pure and natural essence and a crisp and earthy vegetal spirit.
