Tobago Gold Chocolate Rum Cream Honored as Entrepreneur of the Year

Tobago Gold Chocolate Rum Cream

In a prestigious ceremony held at the National Academy of Performing Arts in Port of Spain, Trinidad, Tobago Gold Chocolate Rum Cream was lauded for its remarkable growth, exceptional commercial performance, and profound influence on the wine and spirits industry. Since its inception in the summer of 2021, this Caribbean-inspired liqueur has been making waves.

The roots of Tobago Gold Chocolate Rum Cream can be traced back to a humble kitchen in Arnos Vale, Tobago. Drawing inspiration from the rich 500-year tradition of cocoa tea in the Caribbean, Lars Söderström, a certified chocolate maker, embarked on a journey to craft something unique. He added his twist to the traditional recipe by ingeniously blending high-quality cocoa, 100% Caribbean rum, and a blend of Caribbean spices, resulting in a delectable 17% ABV expression.

Our goal has always been to produce an unparalleled product that celebrates the flavors of the Caribbean. To be recognized as Entrepreneur of the Year is extremely humbling and validates the hard work of our entire team.”
