Pink grapefruit finds its origin in the island of paradise, Barbados. The fruit is an accidental mix between the sweet orange and the pomelo, that crossed paths during the voyaging times. Primarily, the orange fruit was described as ‘the forbidden fruit’. Later it received the name Grapefruit from a Jamaican farmer since the fruit grows in clusters on a tree, similar to the grape. In its early days, the edible fruit was only grown for ornamental purposes. It wasn’t until 1885 when grapefruit was first transported to the United States, where it soon became the favorite ingredient for breakfast.
The fruit is semisweet with a sour undertone, giving it a bitter aftertaste. The tasty citrus flavors serve as a perfect balance to the Swazi rum, infused with floral extracts.
