40% abv, 70 cl
This special-edition rum from Nicaragua's Flor de Cana, a family brand that can trace its roots back to 1890, is the pinnacle of the range. Producing using estate-grown sugar cane, it has rich fruity flavours accompanied by hints of almond. This is a rum to sip neat or over ice.
2017 Double Gold Medal Winner Flor De Cana is naturally aged in small white bourbon barrels sealed with plantain leaves, producing a distinguished and elegant rum with tropical notes. This uninterrupted ageing process has been known for more than a decade as Slow-Aged, contributing to the rum’s remarkable amber colour and rich flavour without the aid of accelerants, unnatural additives and with zero sugar content.
Flor De Cana are proud to be the world’s first spirit to be Carbon Neutral and Fair Trade certified. In Nicaragua’s tropical climate, Flor de Cana matures at a higher temperature and humidity level than is usually experienced by other spirits, such as whiskey and cognac. The barrelhouses in which Flor de Cana is aged have natural ventilation, allowing for exposure to the surrounding high volcanic temperatures and Nicaragua’s tropical humidity, resulting in a complex rum with a bold character beyond its age. The proximity to the San Cristobel volcano also plays a key role in the high evaporation rate of the rum, called “the Angels Share” which is the result of the high interaction between the barrel and the rum, contributing to Flor De Cana’s unique flavour.
