Astor Exclusive: Cacao Prieto

We are proud to be the first and only retailer currently providing these original and incredible new spirits from Cacao Prieto. They are a brand new distillery/chocolate maker with a distinguished and long family history tied to organic cultivation of rare, low yielding heirloom cacao varietals in the Dominican Republic. The entire process from distillation, to ageing, to blending, to bottling is done on the premises in Red Hook, Brooklyn. The balance, authenticity, and flavors are exceptional and the critics are already raving, this stuff is available in limited quantities. A breath of fresh air in two very trendy categories.


Cacao Prieto Don Esteban Rum Liqueur
Cacao Rum Liqueur
 A local, organic liqueur made from single origin heirloom cacao from 100yr old family owned plantations in the Domincan Republic. A harmonious nose of chocolate and sugan cane greet the nose and follow on the palate with a hint of sweetness and citrus. Very smooth, and an excellent digestif or addition to your best cocktails.

 

Don Rafael Cacao Prieto Rum
Cacao Prieto Rum
Deep notes of incredibly pure cacao absolutely jump out of the glass. The chocolate flavors on the palate are accentuated by hints of coffee and the rum base comes bursting through keeping everything very lively and light. For the serious drinker and chocolate lover.
