GVD RUM
This Brazilian Style Rum is made from evaporated cane juice with a hint of molasses to round out the sweetness and add an element of caramelization.  Notes of brown sugar, toasted carmel and hints of citrus and pineapple will create a rich flavor to any rum cocktail. Enjoy the Spirit of Rockford!
