Artisan snack business Made for Drink has created a 100% plant-based snack made to pair perfectly with rum. 

The new plantain chip snack called Patacones (rrp £2.75 per 45g pack) joins the range which until now has been meat-themed and made for pairing with beer - with Duck Fritons, Chorizo Thins and Mangalitza Salami Chips.

Patacones have been developed to match perfectly with golden rum.

Made for Drink founder, Dan Featherstone, said: ‘Since our launch, almost two years ago, it’s become increasingly clear that whilst people buy into everything Made for Drink stands for, we didn’t provide any products that chimed with consumers who don’t eat meat. This, coupled with a desire to find the perfect pairing for the next big thing in craft spirits (rum), saw us instinctively turn to the vibrant street food & drink cultures of South & Central America. This is where we discovered Patacones!’
