The Zacapa experience presents a distinct concept in pairing food with cocktails and experimenting with all aspects of your senses. Allowing the chance for your taste buds to pick up on flavours  you wouldn’t always notice, Zacapa enlightens your palate to new things.

“…the Zacapa Rum itself mirrored the suave interior of Cloud 23…”

Set in the recently reviewed and exclusive Cloud 23 bar, the Zacapa Rum itself mirrored the suave interior of the classy bar, with it’s particular taste and elegant presentation it demonstrated pure sophistication.

The unique experience entitles the tasting of three cocktails, paired to three tasting plates, fittingly designed to complement each drink. Each course was beautifully presented, and complimented the food choice to a tee. Accompanied by a gorgeous view of sunshine stricken Manchester, we enjoyed every luxurious detail and were left feeling spoilt by the end of the evening.
