Cuban Passion Distilled and Bottled

What if you could bottle your favorite place? If you love Cuba and its vibrant atmosphere of colors and excitement, you’re in luck, because this bottle could not be more Cuban if you stuck a cigar in it and made it dance salsa. Vacilón means cheerfulness with a hint of crazy joy, and Ron was the Rum of Cuba in the 1950s. Unfortunately, its production shut down in the Sixties, but worry not, Cuba’s favorite son is back and ready to enchant your senses.

Gran Reserva Añejo 15 Años is a luxurious homage to everything Cubano and is hand-made in the third oldest Cuban town, Remedios – right where the golden age original was created. This magnificent potion spent fifteen years in American oak barrels and it’s fruity, intense and tropical. Master distiller Maestro Ronero made sure only the best local sugar cane was used, and he kept an eye on the secret magic process that infuses Rum with fiesta. Like we said: it’s Cuba in a bottle.

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 used to be accepted as a form of currency in Europe and Australia, a practice we should probably bring back into fashion.
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 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.’
Mount Gay Rum is the oldest existing Rum company in the World dating back to 1705. This is also the year Guy Fawkes tried to blow up Britain’s Parliament.
