10 April 2024

A #RGRebelSpotlight Exclusive:

In a world inundated with mass-produced goods, it's refreshing to stumble upon products that not only captivate the senses but also carry a profound message of tradition and excellence. So this week on RG Spotlights, we're shining a green light on one of the industry's most innovative and sustainable brands. Enter Flor de Cana, a beacon of craftsmanship and heritage that has stood the test of time since its inception in 1890. From the volcanic grounds of the San Antonio Sugar Mill in Chichigalpa, Nicaragua, this illustrious brand has woven a narrative steeped in the rich tradition of Central American rum-making. But Flor de Cana is more than just a beverage; it's a message, a testament to the artistry and dedication poured into every bottle.

Join us as we delve into the captivating world of Flor de Cana rum, where tradition, craftsmanship, and a strong message of heritage converge to create an experience like no other.

Sustainable Sips

Flor de Cana proudly holds a carbon neutral certification from Carbon Trust (UK), meaning it offsets all carbon emissions throughout its product lifecycle, from field to market.

Complementing this, its fair trade certification by Fair Trade USA that guarantees consumers that the rum is sustainably and ethically produced, meeting over 300 labor, social, and environmental standards. The brand implements eco-friendly practices such as capturing and recycling CO2 emissions during fermentation, using 100% renewable energy for distillation, and planting over one million trees since 2005. Beyond its sustainable production process, Flor de Cana strives to uphold these values in both consumers and the trade industry.

The Spirit

As a primary example of their unwavering commitment to their craft, Flor de Cana released their 15-year-old Eco Rum that is carbon neutral and fair trade certified. Crafted with dedication and innovation, this 15-year-old gem is more than a beverage. It’s a commitment to sustainable practices and a testament to Flor De Cana’s pioneering spirit.

Crafted from the finest molasses nurtured by Nicaragua's volcanic soils, each drop of this rum undergoes meticulous fermentation, distillation, ageing, and blending, resulting in a product that epitomises quality and flavour. What truly sets Flor de Cana apart is its unwavering commitment to excellence, exemplified by its signature ageing process in kosher oak barrels.

However, the process of making this rum doesn't compromise on flavour, Flor de Cana is a symphony of flavours that dance across the palate with each sip. Rich aromas of nutmeg, hazelnut, and caramel entice the senses with their warmth and depth. As the rum caresses the palate, notes of dark chocolate and vanilla emerge, intertwined with hints of oak and roasted hazelnuts, creating a luxurious and complex flavour profile. The experience is further elevated by subtle undertones of cinnamon, adding a delicate spice that lingers long after the last sip.

There is an unparalleled quality to the Flor de Cana 15-Year-Old; meticulously crafted through natural ageing and devoid of artificial additives. With a steadfast dedication to natural ageing, we're guaranteed an indulgent experience that is both pure and decadent.

As we conclude our journey into the captivating world of Flor de Cana rum, we're left with a profound appreciation for its commitment to tradition, craftsmanship, and sustainability. From the historic San Antonio Sugar Mill to the conscientious practices implemented in its production, Flor de Cana embodies a legacy of excellence that resonates with every sip. As consumers, we're not just enjoying a beverage; we're partaking in a narrative of heritage and responsibility.

At Robert Graham, one of our core values is sharing the innovative brands that can grace the spirits scene. So with each drop, we find that true indulgence lies not only in flavour but also in the values these brands uphold. So here's to Flor de Cana, a beacon of sustainability and craftsmanship, and to the continued appreciation of products that inspire and enrich our lives.

Stay tuned for more insights into the remarkable world of the unusual and the extraordinary. #RGRebelspotlight.
