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.
The result is a luxurious golden rum, mellow on the palate with vanilla, caramel, nuts and spice, with a glorious lingering finish.
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.
