Another great show taken to the city of London (Ontario) and held at the Western Fair District from January 14-16, 2016. LoveLee ambassadors were there once again sampling some tasty brands including the award winning Flor de Caña Rums and the notoriously named Fat Bastard Wines. As usual, we give away tons of awesome swag and prizes pairing nicely with some tasty drinks!
Flor de Caña is Central America’s leading brand of rum with the finest natural ingredients combined with a unique Slow-Aged process. It’s roots date back as far as 1890 in Chichigalpa, Nicaragua making it a very unique rum like no other. If you haven’t already tried any of Flor de Caña’s selection of rums, I highly recommend that you do. I am not much of a rum drinker myself, but I tried one of their rums and it left me speechless. So smooth and rich tasting, goes down really nice just on its own.
Another of Ange’s delicious cocktail suggestions is the Flor de Caña’s take on one of Nicaragua’s national drink; The Macuá.

Another great product we served up at this show was some Fat Bastard Wines. You may recognize this wine with the big Hippo on the label. What is in a name? “Fat Bastard” the words exclaimed to describe things that were great and in this case, unexpected. Renowned winemaker Thierry and Guy Anderson took the brave act of trying an experimental wine when they tested wine left in a barrel with the yeast cells in it. This discovery left them to create and brand (as the name was literally the first thing Thierry said when he tried it, with a French accent of course) Fat Bastard Wines with tastes so dramatic, rich and colourful, round palates. I personally like the Fat Bastard Merlot with notes of plum and black cherry. There are many more wines to try in the Fat Bastard family of wines. Live Large my friends!
Spring is right around the corner and we are so excited for more events to come and more brands to be sampled. Follow us for more recaps of fun events. And come out to one of our next events and don't forget to say hi to our LoveLee Brand Ambassadors.
