Copalli’s Cacao rum is sure to shoot straight to the heart of your valentine, especially if they are a supporter of sustainability. The brand focuses on sustainability at every step in the distillation process from the harvesting of the cane to the use of rainforest canopy water in the rum, all with zero-waste in mind. 

The Copalli Cacao rum is made with the brand’s white rum which is then tank-rested for several weeks with roasted, organic cacao nibs grown on the neighboring Copal Tree Farm. The rum is then redistilled to smooth out any harsh flavors from the cacao nibs. The result is an intensely chocolaty rum that any chocolate lover would adore.
