On July 22nd, 2014, SobeSavvy along with select media guests were invited to join host, Collette Leonard from Solbeso Spirits, at a private dinner at the new Il Mulino in South Beach and a tasting of Solbeso.
Located at 840 1st St, Miami Beach, FL in the heart of the international scene in Miami Beach, Il Mulino http://www.ilmulino.com adds the distinctive touch of Manhattan to South Beach, seamlessly blending the sophistication of New York with the Art Deco of South Beach.
Solbeso http://www.solbeso.com/ , The New Spirit of Latin America, is made from fresh cacao fruit, creating a characteristic, yet smooth and versatile white alcohol spirit.
Long before the Maya and Aztecs were grinding cocoa beans into what we now call chocolate, local tribes in the ancestral homelands of the cacao plant – South America – fermented the sweet pulp that surrounds the seeds into an alcoholic beverage and enjoying it during celebrations.
New World Spirits brings new life to this ancient tradition; distilling the natural, citrusy, sweet essence of fresh cacao juice into a characteristic, flavorful and incredibly smooth base spirit. Introducing Solbeso, the first premium, 80 proof (40% ABV) white spirit made with 100% fresh cacao fruit.
All in attendance savored the fresh Italian fare and impeccable service of Il Mulino. Here is my photo recap from last night’s event. Enjoy!
