Flor de Caña 12 is a Rum worth bragging about.
Back in 1890, Francisco Alfredo Pellas built a sugarcane plantation and a Rum distillery on the side of an active volcano. People ridiculed him until the virgin batch of rich volcanic soil enhanced Rum reached their lips. Then it was "Don" Francisco's turn to laugh.
125 years later, Flor de Caña Rums produce the highest quality Central American Rums on the flanks of San Cristobal volcano in Chichigalpa, Nicaragua. The company is led by the 5th generation of the Pellas family and their brand, Flor de Caña (meaning “flower of the cane”) has grown to become one of the most recognized Rums in the world. The Flor de Caña line includes eight Rums in their “slow-aged” collection and three ultra-premium Rums.
Flor de Caña 12 Years is aged in average for dozen years in charred oak barrels on site. It's that kind of Rum that is wonderful neat or on ice, while not too expensive, so you can enjoy it in a cocktail. Try it with Orange Curacao and bitters, by the way. This reddish amber wonder won a Gold Medal in 2016 at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition and is surely a drink that's making history.
