If you’re a Vizcaya fan who lives on the East Coast, mark your calendars now for May 19, 2012. That’s the date of “Rum & Rumba: A Night In Old Havana,” which is the theme for this year’s Old Westbury Gardens annual Gardeners’ Fair.
Vizcaya is proud to sponsor this event, which is attended each year by hundreds of high-profile attendees from New York’s philanthropic, social and business communities, and to be the only brand of rum that is poured throughout the evening. Vizcaya Cristal and Vizcaya Cask 12 will provide a smooth, delicious basis for signature Cuban cocktails, while Vizcaya VXOP, the ultimate sipping rum, will be on hand for those guests who prefer to savor their rum straight up or on the rocks.
Additionally, a case of Vizcaya VXOP will be one of the featured auction items. Come place your bid for 12 bottles of the very best rum around, with proceeds to benefit a fantastic charity!
Old Westbury Gardens boasts 60,000 annual visitors. Located on Long Island’s North Shore, the 200-acre estate is home to many events, including children’s programs, concerts and festivals, horticultural classes, tours and talks. The Gardeners’ Fair is a much-anticipated annual extravaganza, and the funds raised on the evening of May 19th will help Old Westbury Gardens achieve its goals of providing environmental education and ensuring that beautiful green spaces are available to all.
Vizcaya is a natural partner for the 2012 “Rum & Rumba: A Night In Old Havana” event, since its family of Cuban-style rums, distilled using premium sugar cane and traditional methods, are rich with flavor and character. Anyone who appreciates the sophisticated nuances of a premium sipping spirit will enjoy the taste of Vizcaya VXOP, its smoothness embued with notes of spice, brown sugar and smoke. For fans of classic Cuban-inspired cocktails like mojitos, El Presidentes and daiquiris, Vizcaya Cristal and Vizcaya Cask 21 fit the bill. These, the newest addition to the Vizcaya line, offer the same high quality as Vizcaya VXOP, while maintaining a more subtle flavor profile. This allows them to be made into top-notch cocktails.
Come hobnob with some of New York’s elite society, drink fabulous cocktails inspired by 1950s Havana, bid on auction items like a case of the ultimate sipping rum, Vizcaya VXOP, and dance in the gardens. It’s “Rum & Rumba: A Night In Old Havana” at the Old Westbury Gardens, and it wouldn’t be the same without you!
