Rumchata is a rum-based horchata cream liqueur manufactured in Wisconsin. The primary flavors are cinnamon and vanilla with hints of other spices such as clove and cardamom. Rumchata is manufactured by Midwest Custom Bottling Company and distributed by Agave Loco LLC. It was first introduced in 2009, and since then has become the second highest-selling cream liqueur in the USA behind only Baileys Irish Cream. Rumchata is bottled at between 13.75% ABV and 15% ABV depending on the market.
In addition to the classic horchata flavored Rumchata original, Rumchata has introduced several other flavored cream liqueur options.
- Rumchata Limon
Rumchata Limon combines the smooth cream and potent spices of the original with the zesty punch of lemon for a citrusy, summer take on cream liqueur. Bottled at 14% ABV.
- Rumchata Frappachata Ice Coffee
Bottled at 12.5% ABV, Rumchata Frappachata Ice Coffee is a rum-based coffee liqueur positioned to compete with Kahlua. Sold as ready to drink alcoholic ice coffee, it also makes a solid, low ABV substitute for coffee liqueur in a cocktail.
- Rumchata Frappachata Mocha Iced Coffee
The more chocolatey cousin of the regular Frappachata iced coffee, Frappachata mocha adds a bit of chocolate smoothness to a cocktail and works as a substitute for coffee liqueur or creme de cacao, albeit at a lower ABV. Like Rumchata Frappachata Ice Coffee, it is intended to be enjoyed neat, as is from the bottle. Bottled at 12.5% ABV.
