Pink Pigeon Vanilla Rum
Pink Pigeon is the premium Mauritian Rum handcrafted on the Medine Sugar Estate on the tropical island of Mauritius – the jewel of the Indian Ocean. Although complex in flavour, Pink Pigeon is easy to drink, distilled with the purest of spirit and the addition of the world's finest natural vanilla.
Pink Pigeon Vanilla RumIt is named after a pigeon that, like the rum, is only to found on Mauritius. Once endangered, this stunning pink quirk of nature, now flourishes again in the island's lush fauna. In flight it symbolises peace, freedom and harmony, and, along with its rarity, shares these qualities with the brand. wrote about Pink Pigeon back in August 2011 (click here to read the article) and since then we featured a drink that our friends at Wax Jambu had on their menu last valentine’s day.  The Pink Pigeon YouTube channel features quite a few new cocktails created by Ryan Chetiyawardana.
