Coronation Khukuri Rum from Nepal

Today I am excited to present "Coronation Khukuri Rum" which is a quality product from Nepal. This is one of the export quality alcohol that produdy represents Nepal. Right from the packaging which is shaped like a "Khukuri" knife used by Gurkha solders, this rum has its own legacy just like the iconic weapon it represents. A loved one from Nepal gifted me this bottle back in 2017 and I have been dying to open it since then. I am not sure about it's availability here in USA. I am sure you will find it if you take your time in google though 😄
It was an amazing experience sharing this legendary Rum from the Himalayas with friends Brian and Felipe who were previously unknown to this exotic golden liquid. It was a good cultural exchange as I proudly narrated the story behind this iconic drink.When we finally opened this bottle-A whole new world of flavor and culture opened up for us! Enjoy our combined tasting notes and have fun!
