A fruity rum cocktail that brings the spirit of Tiki culture to your bar.
Mai Tai, short for “Mai Tai-roa-aé”, means “out of this world” and it’s no wonder why. With rich notes of candied orange peel and dark treacle from Ron Colón, zesty fresh citrus from lime and Cointreau, and warm earthy spices from Orgeat Liqueur, this is truly the king of Tiki cocktails. Full-bodied and fruity with just a hint of sweet spice, our carefully crafted Mai Tai is sure to bring a slice of tropical paradise to your home bar.
Mai Tai History
The story of Ron Colón began in 2018, when founders Thurman Wise and Pepijn Janssens travelled to El Salvador and were enchanted by the dramatic volcanic landscapes, beautiful beaches, and exceptional coffee. This trip ignited a passion to showcase the vibrant El Salvador they fell in love with: and so they coined Ron Colón, so-named for the old currency used there in times gone by. As El Salvador is famed for the coffee plants that thrive on the volcanic mountain sides, Thurman and Pepijn decided to infuse Ron Colón with bourbon coffee beans, which have a particularly sweet and buttery texture. The Salvadoran rum is a fruit-forward style with a light, dry finish. In addition to woody spices, toasted almonds and warm vanilla on the nose, the coffee helps to highlight rich, sticky plum flavours and plenty of dark chocolate.
