Ron Flor de Cana Rum
Ron Flor de Cana RumFlor de Caña (Spanish for "sugarcane flower") is a brand of premium rum manufactured and distributed by Compañía Licorera de Nicaragua which is headquartered in Managua, Nicaragua and dates back as far as 1890.
Flor de Caña is made by Compañía Licorera de Nicaragua, S.A, (CLNSA) and dates back to 1890. The company originally sought to develop a large sugarcane plantation and built the first distillery in Chichigalpa (about 120 km from Managua) at the base of the San Cristóbal Volcano.
Compañía Licorera de Nicaragua was founded in 1937. It was founded by the great-grandfather of the current president, who moved from Italy to Nicaragua in 1875. After building the distillery, it was not until 1937 that Flor de Caña was formally introduced to the Nicaraguan market, with Flor de Caña Etiqueta Amarilla and Flor de Caña Etiqueta Roja being the first two flavors.
In 1959 it was first exported to Venezuela, Costa Rica and other Central American countries.Between 1963 and 1965 the distillery in Chichigalpa underwent modernization updates. Eight years later a second distillery was constructed in Honduras. During the 1980s, Flor de Caña was stored in large quantities due to the Nicaraguan Revolution. By 1990, Flor de Caña had the largest reserve of aged rum in the world.
The distillery in Chichigalpa was completely modernized in 1996. The company now sponsors the Flor de Caña Open, an event on the PGA Tour Latinoamérica, in addition to international bar-mixing competitions. It also sponsors international fishing tournaments of the International Game Fish Association.
