Fancy a tipple?

As you prepare your cake for Christmas, be sure to lavish your cake with a dash of the good stuff.

We caught up with Ian Burrell, a Rum Ambassador, who travels the world educating the masses about his passion; the history, different varieties and flavours of rum (they never told me about this job at the school careers fair).  I wanted the low-down on the best rum for my Christmas cake and fruit cakes in general.

 “When looking for a rum to soak your Christmas cake or fruit cake, you should look for one that is rich with a natural flavour. Naturally vanilla, caramel, butterscotch, dried fruit, citrus, brown sugar, banana and toffee are some of the more popular aroma’s and flavours that you can pick up from an beautifully aged rum.”

 So here is the Rum Ambassador’s top five recommendations for your fruitcake:

  • Ron Zacapa 23
  • El Dorado12
  • AppletonExtra
  • Angostura 1919
  • Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva

You can buy any of these from Gerry’s in Soho, where they stock over 100 different varieties of rum.  To find out where the Rum Ambassador is heading next, go to The Rum Ambassador page on Facebook.
