Rio Caribe
  Macuro  
The Macuro is the most robust of the Rio Caribe line, this unique product consists of a high percentage of cacao liquor combined with a slight amount of cacao butter – creating an intense but friendly woody and earthy aroma with a trickle of coffee flavor that lingers smoothly on the palate.
The name Macuro comes from a small fishing village in the south west side of the Paria peninsula. This region is historically significant; it marks Christopher Columbus' first and only landing on continental America.
