Phraya – meaning, ‘of a higher rank’ was exactly my thought when I unwrapped my bottle of Rum, encased with a beautiful gold embellishment while radiating a brilliant glow. I could not wait to sample this magnificent prize I had received. Phraya rum, crafted in Thailand takes its inspiration from the Asian elements of Fire, Earth, Air and Water. (You totally thought of the cartoon Captain Planet right? – Or was that just me? Guess it depends when you were born! hah!)
Despite the beautiful bottle that put me in a trance, Phraya shares with us a delicious cocktail recipe for all to enjoy. Before sharing though, I must comment on how deeply in love with their motto I am —
“….Happiness never decreases by being shared.” – Phraya Philosphy
