Zuma Dubai Welcomes Ron Zacapa’s Ambar
As a world first, the exquisite Ron Zacapa’s Ambar rum was revealed in a private showcase during an eloquent Zacapa speakeasy lounge at Zuma Dubai this Spring. Attended by a diverse collection of the city’s residents, influencers and loyal visitors of Zuma, the evening was a vibrant and captivating experience for all.
Displayed in the chic and enchanting terrace area of Zuma Dubai, the rum was celebrated in a space that prides itself on a similar vision to the venue: craft and experience. Encompassing both those elements, Ambar cocktails and select drinks were served through special tastings with reputed patrons at Zuma and will be a staple addition. As part of Zuma’s prominent bar menu, the Guatemalan Storm is the newest unique cocktail to be included featuring a combination of twelve-year-old, smooth Ambar rum; yuzu, coconut and ginger beer. Ambar will be exclusively available at Zuma Dubai over the course of the next three months
& will continue to be introduced globally.
We are extremely delighted to reconnect with the incredible brand that is Ron Zacapa. We are more than honored to be a part of the launch of Ambar, which without a doubt complements the luxury experience that we offer.” said, Jimmy Barrat, Global Bar Development Director for Zuma and the forward thinking innovative leader behind the award-winning bar programme. “Striving to continuously innovate, the inclusion of the delicious rum as a world first is in line with our overarching mission at Zuma, adding another notable moment for the brand.”
The speakeasy lounge pop-up was part of Zuma Dubai’s terrace feature until the 1st of March, where invited guests indulged in the carefully created and soulful Zacapa Ambar cocktails.
