Sisserou, The Drink
Sisserou is a blend of rum coconut and cream . It's delicious on its own over ice (try adding grated nutmeg!) and is excellent in cocktails. It makes a nice long drink by adding coconut water. Mix it with coconut water before adding citrus for best results.

I grew up on the tiny island of Dominica in the Caribbean (not to be confused with Dominican Republic!). Fresh green coconut water was always one of my favourite drinks even as a young child. As I grew older and discovered alcohol, I loved mixing rum with coconut!
At university in America my mum used to send me bottles and bottles of her homemade brew. I always thought it was the best recipe on the island. My friends loved the drink and I was doing a business degree. My brain started ticking! If people love it so much why not sell it to them? Sisserou is based on my family's recipe from Dominica. It is a delicious blend of rum coconut and cream. It's great on its own over ice, in coffee, cocktails and desserts The opportunity arose to produce it after I arrived in the UK.
Sisserou rum and coconut cream liqueur gets its name from the Sisserou Parrot which is the National Bird of Dominica
