This month, we’ve teamed up with Eminente on a very special collaboration, bringing you some summer cocktail inspiration plus the chance to win the ultimate KIP x Eminente Experience…

Meet Eminente, the Unexpected Rum from the untainted Cuba.

To help you relax, recharge and escape (and take a slice of Cuban contentment back home with you), we’re inviting you to discover Eminente — a new Cuban rum from the heart of an island locals call ‘Isla del Cocodrilo’, whose unusual shape resembles that of its native crocodile. 

Imagined by César Martí, the youngest Cuban Maestro Ronero (Rum Master), Eminente is a rich and full-bodied rum that draws its inspiration from 19th-century Cuban sugarcane eaux-de-vie, with all their complexity.

We invite you to enjoy it neat, on the rocks or in cocktails — and you can shop Eminente Reserva here.

And here are 2 tasty recipes to get you started:
