This story began 1875 when Alfredo Francisco Pellas Canessa, a young adventurer from Genoa, Italy, risked everything by leaving behind his family and the comforts of the old continent to travel to the exotic country of Nicaragua. In 1890, he found the perfect setting for the Flor de Caña distillery at the base of the San Cristóbal volcano, the tallest and most active volcano in Nicaragua. The fertility of its surrounding lands, the enriched water and the hot volcanic climate proved to be instrumental in forging the rum’s unique and smooth flavor. Since then it has been a traditional family business which is now run by the fifth generation.
This Gran Reserva from Flor de Cana 90 Proof is a perfect rum to mix with, it is complex, deep and intense with a long finish that fades away slowly.
