A Sangster’s Surprise

There’s nothing like the sweet indulgence of, you guessed it, rum! And last week, The Gleaner Company (Media) Limited was treated to a Sangster’s surprise.

‘Tis the season of giving, and Sangster’s Jamaica Rum Cream granted the gift of flavour to staff members. An exquisite blend of premium aged Jamaican rum, boasting rich creamy notes with waves of exotic local fruits and spices, Sangster’s Jamaica Rum Cream has been defined as the smooth and velvety liqueur to capture the essence of the excitement and mystery of the land of wood and water.

The purveyors of this milky goodness want women to feel confident with every sip. The brand encourages enjoyment among girlfriends, and is a popular drink of choice for celebration as well as relaxation.

The smooth operators wasted no time once they arrived at the media house, giving out roses to The Gleaner sweethearts, inclusive of notes from their Sangster’s secret admirers inviting them to have the first drink on them, redeemable at the listed locations.

Providing the same great ­consistency, the makers and ­distributors have repackaged the 750ml and 1 litre bottles of rum cream to make the label more vibrant and appealing in display, depicting the colourful history of the brand and the culture as a whole.

The real Sangter’s surprise came when mixologists cracked open new bottles and gave the lengthy line a taste of the original (and still the best) as well as the coconut flavour. Many drank in merriment of the spontaneous occasion, which gave different departments the opportunity to mingle with each other and unwind from a hard workday. If those flavours don’t tickle your fancy, you can check out the other tasty variety ­available at all major supermarkets and wholesales in rum and raisin, Blue Mountain ­coffee, chocolate and banana.
