Typical Tenerife Wine & Drink
Dating back to the dates of the Spanish conquest, Tenerife is known for the sweet red wines attained principally from the Malvasia grape. You'll find five Tenerife wine regions with a Mark of Origin:
The Canary Islands, known for their historical affinity of both rum (the Canary Islands were the place of origin for the sugar cane that Spain brought to Latin America) and honey, eventually mixed the two to create ron-miel, or honey rum. The savory rum boasting a hint of sweet honey is popular in the Canary Islands to which is it native and is taken straight- if you mix it you'll lose the flavor!
