About the Brand
Rum is the soul of Cuba and the raw materials, the method of ageing and blending, and the expertise of Ron Santiago de Cuba’s Maestros del Ron Cubano – their Masters of Rum – make it unique.
For over eight generations, the Maestros del Ron Cubano of the city of Santiago de Cuba have followed tradition and experience rather than a recipe. Their process of blending, together with the use of different types of casks to bring out subtle variations of flavour, forms their age-old expertise.
The Oriente region of Cuba – the eastern tip of the island – has been known as the Cradle of Light Rum since 1862 and Santiago de Cuba is the city where the tradition was born. The sugarcane from the southeast of the island is imbued with minerality from the sea and aromatically sweet. High sugar levels, low acidity, and low viscosity mean that the sugarcane molasses made here are perfect for distilling.
The resulting spirit is charcoal filtered to refine its delicate, dry character before blending and ageing. All Cuban rums are aged in white oak barrels, and all of them, including the ‘white’ rums, are aged for a second time after blending.
Alongside the climate of the southeast, the Cuban way of creating rum results in a liquid impossible to recreate outside of its geographical and cultural context. In 2010, this was recognised when the Cuba Denominación de Origen Protegida (DOP) was granted to Cuban rum, guaranteeing that they are produced traditionally, according to strict, specific criteria.
