Summit of the Americas participants can expect to learn new ways to enjoy traditional coffee and pick up some golf and fashion tips along the way

Fast-growing cream liqueur brand The House of Somrus has teamed up with US influencers, fashionistas and golf celebrities The Sadekar Sisters, Nisha and Seema, to host Virtual Coffee breaks at the upcoming Summit of the Americas — A Virtual Experience (5-9 April).

The House of Somrus Virtual Coffee Breaks were a big hit during last year’s hugely successful Moodie Davitt Virtual Travel Retail Expo, offering golf tips and style advice to Expo visitors in between Knowledge Hub sessions.

“The Team at The House of Somrus is thrilled to participate in the inaugural Virtual Summit of the Americas 2021 following the success of the Moodie Davitt Virtual Travel Expo last October,” commented The House of Somrus Director of Global Business Guy May.

“We are delighted to share the Somrus line of next generation cream liqueurs with the Americas attendees and will debut a new series of virtual Somrus Coffee Breaks as part of the industry presentations.

“Please join us at the show as our favourite fashionistas and golf celebrities, the Sadekar Sisters,  Nisha & Seema, cheerfully celebrate the rich coffee culture of several Americas countries. Don’t miss the fun; register for the Virtual Summit of the Americas now.”

The House of Somrus debuted its Coffee Cream Liqueur with Duty Free Global at the October event. Duty Free Global is also a Gold Exhibitor for the Summit of the Americas.

As reported, The House of Somrus offers a range of Indian-inspired cream liqueurs and is one of the most-awarded lines of next-generation cream liqueurs in the market. Its products are made with dairy cream and five-times distilled hand-crafted rum. Its range is low ABV, preservative-free, gluten-free and is made with no artificial flavours.

The portfolio comprises Coffee, Mango and Kulfi flavours. Coffee was inspired by ‘Kaapi,’ a popular filter coffee in South India. It is made with an artisanal blend of Arabica coffee and roasted chicory.

Mango takes inspiration from the Mango Lassi and the Indian Aamrus milkshake. It is crafted with a blend of fresh Alphonso mangoes, dairy cream and rum. Kulfi was based on popular Indian desserts from Kulfi and Ras Malai and offers a flavourful mixture of Eastern spices and nuts.
