Thumbs up Greetings from Boston!

I'm glad I found this forum. I work here in Boston, Massachusetts at a consulting firm that works largely with beverage businesses.

My favorite rum brand at the moment is Zacapa. I'm actually traveling to Rome on business in the coming months, and I was wondering if anyone knew where I could pick up a bottle there? I understand they don't have the exclusively liquor stores in Rome as liquors are sold at grocery stores. On a trip to Germany I found that you could find Zacapa and other premium rums in cigar shops. Any insight into where I can pick up a bottle (or two) would be much appreciated!!

Cheers,
Captain Durk

Welcome to the MOR, always good to have another redsox fan. Here is an italian company that might have a store or might ship to your hotel.

Hi Captain, im the owner of R2M in Rome, where you can take all the bottles of zacapa that you will want. So please inform me when you will come here in Rome, and i'll reserve you the bottles.

Tnx RonJames for your suggestion!
