With a rich history dating back to 1934, delve into the details behind the distilling with September's featured spirit Havana Club.
Havana Club is one of best-selling rum brands in world, with a rich history dating back to 1934.
Originally produced by the Arechabala family in their own distillery, the brand was nationalised after the Cuban Revolution of 1959.
The Anejo Especial edition, featured in this month’s Tipple Box, is a double-aged rum with hints of cinnamon, tobacco, orange peel and dry oak.
Produced in Cuban tradition using high-quality sugarcane, the rum is slowly distilled in columns which have been designed especially for Havana Club.
Following their unique distillation method, the rum is aged for a number of years in barrels previously used for maturing American bourbon.
The rum is then transferred and ‘double aged’ in Irish whiskey barrels, giving Havana Club Añejo Especial a smooth, balanced flavour.
Curating the Caribbean in a bottle, the spiced rum is packed full of flavour ready to have your taste buds doing the rumba!
