Created at the Flor de Caña distillery in Nicaragua, Central America, in 2000, this delicious rum from Cask 88’s Rum Collection was then matured for 19 years before bottling.
Founded by Alfredo Francisco Pellas Canessa, the distillery sits in the shadow of one of the world’s most active volcanoes, San Cristóbal. Shrugging off the occasional uncouth eruption, the distillery took advantage of incredibly fertile volcanic soils to produce its rum, and has been the enduring pride of Nicaragua for well over a century.
Flor de Caña is renowned as the world’s first entirely carbon neutral distillery, using renewable energy, carbon capture and sustainable farming to produce their spirit. This never comes at the cost of the actual product, and Flor de Caña rum is the recipient of a great many prizes, including ‘Global Rum Producer of the Year’ in 2017.
As dark as a slab of ginger cake – and as robustly sweet, chewy and spicy as one too, this full-bodied rum entirely coats the palate with rich fruity and cakey flavours, and propels a citrussy sharpness up the back of the nose. It’s the perfect accompaniment to heavy fruit cakes and perfect for sipping with dessert.
Only 170 bottles of this exceptional rum were produced.
