Rum with a mission: an awesome Cuba Libre.

It was 1875, when a man in Italy decided it would be a great idea to move to Nicaragua. And for him, it was indeed! The industrious head of the Pellas family established a distillery and by 1890, the bottles of his Flor de Caña Rum appeared on the shelves of Nicaragua. He didn’t wait long to expand to other markets and by 1990s, his family business had the largest reserve of aged Rums in the world.

Flor de Caña Rums carry volcano in their blood. The fertile volcanic soil brings rich minerals and due to the climate, Angels take a fair share of the Rum aging in white oak barrels that used to hold Bourbon. The result are the lovely amber color and rich flavors.

Flor de Caña 4 Year Añejo Gold (Oro) is a premium golden Spirit with a vanilla corsage and is great for either neat sipping or light cocktails and punches (a mixed drink, not blows with your fist). It's a naturally aged Rum with the number 4 as a representative figure of the average age. It's smooth and puts more expensive Rums to shame. We could use a ton of superlatives, but let's cut to the chase: it's delicious. Simple as that. Easy to drink though, so mind your bottle.

Rum (usually) comes from molasses, the sweet and syrupy residue of refining sugarcane into sugar. Molasses is over 50% sugar, but it also contains significant amounts of minerals and other trace elements, contributing to the final flavor.
Rum is why we measure alcohol proof. To make sure Rum wasn’t watered down, it had to be ‘proven’ by soaking gunpowder with it. If it was ‘overproof’ (higher than 57.15 % vol.), then the gunpowder would ignite, but if it wouldn’t, it was ‘underproof.’
Flor de Caña rums are distilled 100% with renewable energy, certified by Lloyd's Register. Throughout the turbulent years in Nicaragua (1980s) Flor de Caña Distillery was able to maintain production and storing rum in white oak casks. Today they have one of the largest reservoirs of aged rum in the world.
Rum used to be accepted as a form of currency in Europe and Australia, a practice we should probably bring back into fashion.
Next time you have a tipple of Rum you can say that you're tapping the Admiral. This intriguing phrase comes from the great Admiral Nelson who was killed in the battle of Trafalgar off of Spain. The story is that his body was preserved in Rum to be shipped back to England but, when the barrel arrived, some of the Rum was missing and said to have been siphoned off by some desperate or unknowing sailors. It's a great story but most likely false.
Rum is a sugar cane based spirit, primarily made in the Caribbean and Latin America, but you can really find Rum in many corners of the world.
