What's Cookin, Chicago. Years had past since I saw her again and when I did, it was the first day of culinary school a few months ago since she was in my class! What a small world and better yet, she's a genuine foodie like me and we can talk hours on end about food, restuarants, recipes and everything in between. I knew Jill could definitely appreciate this event so I was thrilled to have her join me.

The rum has won awards from different international competitions and is the first rum to be included in the International Rum Festival’s Hall of Fame.
It was a fantastic evening where I left with a greater appreciation of rum in general and a high level of respect for those involved in making Zacapa Rum. The stories told of the men and women who make this handcrafted rum really makes each bottle so special. If you happen to see Zacapa Rum while you're shopping for spirits to stock your bar this holiday season, do give it a try because it's not only amazing in cocktails and on it's on, but it's something that Guatemalans are so very proud to offer folks around the world.
