19 May Randy Rapposelli
AFROHEAD South Florida Rum Ambassador
AFROHEAD Premium Aged Dark Rum was blended for the storytellers, the rebels, the pioneers. These same words describe AFROHEAD Rum’s South Florida Ambassador, Randy Rapposelli, and his role with the brand. As a storyteller, Rapposelli will be leading brand and category education; as a rebel, he will create unexpected cocktails and opportunities to showcase the rum; and as a pioneer, he will introduce AFROHEAD Rum to new consumers.
New Jersey native, Rapposelli loved to cook and share meals with his friends and family. His passion for food sparked his interest in the hospitality industry. Starting at the bottom, he gained experience through serving and casual bartending, during which he quickly became enamored with the bar culture. Eight years later, Rapposelli moved to Delray Beach, Florida to further his career. Eager for more, Rapposelli immersed himself within the local community. With a keen eye for detail- perfectly balanced, creative, seasonal cocktails are the essence of his style. Today, Rapposelli has been the mind behind some of the most refined cocktails bars. Rapposelli’s goal is to bring the same quality of ingredients and attention to balance that you would expect while sitting at the bar with him. Every step of the process has been curated and overseen.
Rapposelli conveys the same dedication and energy for Afrohead Rum. He loves sharing his passion about Harbour Island’s Best Kept Secret – Afrohead Rum’s unexpected taste profile and authentic story of the rum’s origin. When Rapposelli drinks Afrohead Rum he says, “I take my Afrohead Rum neat. More often than not I’m sipping on a glass of Afrohead XO on the rocks, it’s nice and smooth with an unexpected finish.” Rapposelli adds, “Afrohead is also best when you’re enjoying it in the company of others. It’s the most memorable when sharing it with great people. Salute!”
