The 7 Miel cocktail is inspired on the classic Canchánchara, a truly traditional Cuban Cocktail. The Canchánchara was a simple drink for freedom fighters, that got refined many years later by the Cuban Cantineros elevating the drink to a whole new level. Interestingly, the word “miel” used to describe the sweetener in the Canchánchara could also easily refer either to honey or to the molasses, the base product for creating our rum.

The 7 Miel informal cocktail is inspired by the simplicity and honey touch from the Canchánchara. It creates a drink where the intense character of Havana Club Añejo 7 años is subtly brought to life by the honey and the cocktail maintain the informal spirit of the Canchánchara and the multilayered Havana Club Añejo 7 años flavors
