Ron Santiago de Cuba Rum
Ron Santiago de Cuba RumSantiago de Cuba rum is produced in the eastern part of the country, an area considered to be the Mecca of Cuban light rum. Strongly marked by mountainous geography and numerous microclimates, the rum produced in the province of Santiago de Cuba has protected designation of origin status. In 1862 the first rum factory on the island was founded here, Las Roneras de Santiago de Cuba, and ever since different generations of master rum makers have perfected the art of making rum here, producing Santiago (as the locals call it), Caney and Varadero rums.
Santiago rum stands out for its high quality and meticulous production process. It’s characterized by a careful selection of the schnapps, successive mixtures of the aged bases and a traditional and natural aging in barrels of American white oak. In addition, the value for money of this rum is incredible, especially if you buy the premium products.
Santiago is often the favorite brand of rum for the most select drinkers, and although its production runs and marketing activity are far less than Havana Club, for around six years it has been exported to many countries in Europe, Asia and Latin America.
