- Velvet Falernum is a longtime staple item of resorts and bars in Barbados. The sweetness, spice, and almond character of this rum-based liqueur provides weight and texture to classic rum and wine punches.
John D Taylor's Velvet Falernum is considered by many as the original Falernum, and is today produced by famed rum distiller R.L. Seale Ltd. Falernum is staple for tropical drinks such as swizzles, Zombies, and other Tiki drinks. Try the island favorite with two parts aged rum, three dashes Angostura, and a squeeze of lime. Add to wine and orange juice for a quick, delicious Sangria. (from the distiller)
