Flor de Caña’s super premium Rums are aged naturally and enriched by the unique properties of the San Cristobal volcano, the most active in Nicaragua. The fertility of its soil, the enriched volcanic water, and the hot volcanic climate to which the barrels are exposed during the aging process contribute to Flor de Caña’s singularly smooth and deliciously balanced character.
Their history dates back to 1890, when Francisco Alfredo Pellas Canessa, along with the founders, would celebrate the end of harvest season with small quantities of aged Rum. Over 125 years later, the business is run by the family’s 5th generation.
Flor de Caña’s eco-friendly distillery uses 100% renewable energy andplanting 50,000 trees every year. Their premium Rums are distilled five times to achieve maximum purity before being naturally aged in premium bourbon barrels sealed with plantain leaves. There are no extra sugar or additives.
Flor de Caña advocates a holistic focus: environment, employees, and community, winning over 180 international accolades, including: “Best Rum Producer in the World” (International Wine and Spirit Competition), Best Rum of the Year (International Rum Conference in Madrid), “#1 Rum on the Planet” (The Huffington Post), and “Among the Finest Products in the World” (San Francisco World Spirits Competition).
