Epic Guide to RumChata
You can't miss the bright gold cap on the bright white bottle in the store.
Seeing the bottle and knowing what to do with it, how long it lasts, and what it tastes like is a totally different thing.
One of the things I find is when I visit our large wine and liquor stores I always find something interesting but some of them I have no idea what they taste like or what to do with them.
I decided to start writing Liquor Guides to help answer questions and share what we have learned from mixing with each of these liquours.
What is RumChata?
It is a delicious blend of Mexican spice, five-time distilled Caribbean rum, and Wisconsin dairy cream.
It was inspired by the drink horchata.
It is worth noting that it is made in Pewaukee, Wisconsin, and has been since 2009.
Even though the bottle says "Horchata con Ron" there is no actual horchata in the bottle.
Horchata is a traditional drink from Mexico and Spain that dates back to ancient Egyptians.
Traditionally horchata does not contain dairy.
Founder - Tom Maas

What does RumChata taste like?
A distinct cinnamon flavor in a sweet creamy liquor.
It is often compared to Baileys Irish Cream. Which is another top-selling cream liqueur.

The closest thing to describing the flavor is the milk at the bottom of the bowl of Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal.
