From Rum Lovers to Wine Coinsures

In honor of National Wine Day, we offer delicious pairings of distinct wine varieties with our Jamaican rum-soaked cakes, guaranteed to make each sip and bite the best combination.

Wine

The moist, buttery vanilla of our Butter Rum cake is a great base for a very flavorful (earthy or oaked) dry white wine, like Chardonnay or Champagne.

The sweet flavor of homemade caramel in our Caramel Rum cake pairs perfectly with a German favorite, Gewürztraminer, to add a bit of spice and passion fruit notes.

Our rich Chocolate Rum cake, made with milk chocolate chips, is best paired with a more modern wine, like Syrah, with high levels of tannins and hints of blackberry or mint.

Replacing the cream cheese frosting with a Jamaican rum glaze, our Red Velvet cake goes best with a sweet dessert wine, like Port or Sherry.
