There's no link. When there's a good offer on, we spread the word. That's all!

Default Waitrose supermarkets

cycloneX,

Sorry for the delay in replying. Waitrose is a British supermarket chain that has - probably - a better rum selection than any other supermarket chain in the UK. I don't think that they ship to the USA, but if you want to browse their website, it's

www.waitrose.com

On this side of the Atlantic, we sometimes forget that Cuban rum is virtually unobtainable in the US and how frustrating this must be. On the other hand, we have to pay a lot more for our rum than you do, thanks to the obscene levels of taxation in Britain.

Incidentally, there is a selection of Cuban cocktail recipes on the Waitrose website at the moment,

Cyclone X, my apologies, I misunderstood your question. I thought you were suggesting Berbician was in some way connected with Waitrose.

Just to add to what Berbician said, the wine and spirits section of the Waitrose website is here:

http://www.waitrosewine.com

I hope one day you will be able to enjoy Cuban products freely like the rest of us!

speaking of supermarkets, aldi have started doing the tiburon rum batidas again. this year, they've got rid of the pomegranate and replaced it with blood orange rum. for a £5iver, the coconut one is immense.
