Rum and Amari Tastings on a Disney Cruise

From Salah Chetbi, Dining and Beverage Standards and Consistency Manager, Disney Cruise Line and posted on the Disney Parks Blog.

Next up in my series about the beverage seminars available for adults on a Disney cruise, I’ll tell you about two more of our fun liquor tastings – rum and amari.


Rum Tasting

Rum was first distilled on sugarcane plantations in the Caribbean. A good amount of the world’s rum production still takes place on the islands we visit, making it a beverage of choice for cruisers on our tropical voyages.

As with our other liquor seminars, in our Rum Tasting you’ll learn about the history and production method of this spirit, along with different types such as dark, light, gold, flavored and spiced rum. In addition to tasting three rums straight, you’ll also learn how to make (and of course taste!) two delicious cocktails – Cuba Libre & Caipirinha.


Amari Tasting

Amari, or in singular form amaro, are herbal liqueurs distilled in Italy known for their digestive qualities. As such, amaro is commonly enjoyed after dinner, served neat, although amari cocktails are becoming more and more popular.

In this tasting, you’ll learn about the production, origins, styles and flavorings of this Italian liqueur. You’ll taste five different types such as Ramazzoti, Limoncello, Strega, Cynar and Fernet. It’s the perfect introduction for those of you who have not yet indulged in this flavorful spirit.
