It’s one of the great exports of Haiti — rum. And, more specifically, the country’s famous Rhum Barbancourt.

That brings us to the Marriott Port-au-Prince, where the hotel’s clientele sip on this fruity refresher made with Haiti’s own Rhum Barbancourt.

Featuring Barbancourt’s 5 Star Réserve Spéciale and Barbancourt Pango Rhum (made from sugar cane juice that’s aged in oak casks and blended with natural mango and pineapple), it’s a tropical tipple guaranteed to please.
