The story of Zacapa ...
So dear readers, I would like to introduce you to a world of warmth, happy times and passion - everything I admire, preferably together with the exclusive and timeless Zacapa rum which will without a doubt, deliver one of the mentioned if you need ...
You who've followed this blog over the years has seen this bottle from Guatemalas hights next to our side in more or less every trip my man and I have taken together. It's a sign of life and passion for us actually and we always have a few bottles of the 23 years one at home and will inevitably serve it to those we love and care for. We call it the secret ingredient. And really, it is! The smooth and rich taste will fill your taste buds and it's a perfect match to a Friday evening in front of a fire. It doesn't at all makes you sleepy (which a glass of nice red wine tends to do), it just brings you to a happy place where you feel more sensual and simply relaxed. I'm telling you it can be dangerous ... Use protection everyone!
Ron Zacapa, who shared the unimaginable news that they wanted me and Susanne Histrup (her blog here) to be the faces of their high-end rum brand in Scandinavia. Susanne had (at the time) never even had a drop of this rum... but let's say it played an important role in the creation of both my children, so for me it was only too good to be true. We were delighted, not to mention humbled and feeling very privileged, to be able to say yes to such an honour.
They asked us to invite a few very select people and after a lot of careful planning and major help from Pricsilla, we celebrated all of the above last Friday in the Napolyon restaurant in Östermalm. Food, rum and lovely people, what else can one ask for?
Here we are shortly before the guests start arriving.
So ohhh! what a night, we did of course not end it here at 1am... no, we went out in the night to celebrate life as it should!
Thank you dearly Susanne for doing this together with me and being such a fun partner in crime and thank you our lovely husbands for the support and everyone for coming: Annika, Johan, Linnea, Yang, Petra, Marcus, Sara, Danjiel, William, Sofia, Andreas, Corinne, Stina, Ph, Mathilda, Gustav, Caroline, Niklas och Emanuel.
