California is the first state in the U.S. to debut Pink Pigeon Rum just in time for the holidays. This super premium, single estate rum comes from the oldest distillery on the luxury resort island of Mauritius — the jewel of the Indian Ocean, and is blended with handpicked vanilla from Madagascar and the Reunion Islands. A delicate pink band around the bottle’s neck is an homage to the tag placed around the ankles of the spectacular pink pigeons that fly above Mauritius. The band is stamped with the words: “Peace, Freedom & Harmony” — the message symbolized by the rare pink pigeons. (www.pinkpigeonrum.com)
