A Rum born in volcano to make your cocktails great.

It was 1875, when a man in Italy decided it would be a great idea to move to Nicaragua. And for him, it was! 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.

The distillery is situated on the sides of San Cristóbal volcano and the Flor de Caña Rums carry the volcano in their blood. The volcanic soil is rich in minerals and the climate makes sure the aging produces complex and amazing Spirits. Flor de Caña Rums are matured in white oak barrels that used to hold Bourbon. The result are the lovely amber color and opulent flavors.

Flor de Caña 5 Añejo Clásico is slightly lighter than the 7 and the nose is classic Flor: easily recognizable and luxurious aromas of chocolate and toffee. Añejo Clásico was made as a mixer and it makes a wonderful Cuba Libre. It's smooth and delicate and it gives even more expensive Rums a run for their money.

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.
You might find Rum masquerading itself under other nom de plumes, like Ron, Rom and Rhum.
A little bit of etymology; nobody really knows where the word Rum comes from. The most popular suggestions are Rum (the Romani word for 'potent'), Rumbullion (an uproar), Saccharum (sugar in Latin), and Rummer (a Dutch drinking glass).
Rum used to be accepted as a form of currency in Europe and Australia, a practice we should probably bring back into fashion.
