Flor de Caña is a Fair Trade certified and sustainably produced premium rum. From a 5th generation single family estate, it's enriched by an active volcano, naturally aged without sugar and distilled 100% with renewable energy. It was awarded "Best Rum Producer of the Year" in 2017 by the International Wine and Spirit Competition (IWSC) in London.
Flor de Caña Distillery (Spanish for "sugarcane flower") is owned and produced by Compañía Licorera de Nicaragua, which was founded in 1890 - although Flor de Caña was not marketed commercially until 1937. Its story began when, in 1875, Italian explorer Alfredo Francisco Pellas Canessa travelled to Nicaragua. By 1890, he had found the site for Flor de Caña distillery in Chichigalpa at the base of the San Cristóbal volcano. Situated on the Pacific Ring of Fire, the most active volcanic region in the world, the natural area boasted incredibly fertile soils and mineral enriched reservoirs, while the hot climate was of course ideal for the ageing of the rum.
Fast forward 125 years, and the same family is running the distillery after five generations! Flor de Caña rums are distilled five times during production and with 100% with renewable energy. The rum is aged in small 180 litre charred white oak bourbon barrels, sealed with Nicaraguan plantain leaves, under natural climatic conditions. Today, Flor de Caña have one of the largest reservoirs of aged rum in the world.
