Havana Club Cocktail Grand Prix 2016
The Winner is …
As we focused on tradition and authenticity, we asked the world's best cantineros (bartenders in cuba) to use local ingredients and Cuban inspiration to create their cocktails. After 2 days of discovery, visiting of the town, tasting cuban rum and meeting the Maestros del Ron Cubano, the participants...
We always talk to you about our rum, the flavours and the quality but we never talked about the people behind the Havana Club rum.
Indeed we have decided to introduce you to our Havana People, the unsung heroes, working every day to make sure that our rum is produced to the highest standard.
Leysis Quesada, a famous Cuban documentary photographer, dived into their common passion and captured them making rum. Ciro Bianchi, a famous Cuban writer also entered into their daily life for you to get to know the real people and personalities behind the elaboration of Havana Club 7.
Havana Club 3 years old : a Rum Master !
The Rum Masters 2016 : Three Havana Club Rums received a medal
We are thrilled to announce that Havana Club 3 years old won the medal of “Rum Master” !
Year on year, The Spirits Business attributes medals to the best rum of each category during The Rum Master tasting. This year, Havana Club 3 is the one winning the battle in the white rum category.
Barnes, one of the judges said : “In this category I’m looking for rum that has character, which is a very hard thing to achieve with white rum. It tends to be a much cleaner spirit, which is why you find so many white rums are aged and then stripped of their colour.”They saw in Havana Club 3, a good quality rum with “plenty of flavour” and “lots of cocktail potential”.
But our 3 year old rum is not the only one to receive a medal : Havana Club 7 Años and Havana Club 15 Años both received a Silver medal for “Dark Aged 8-12 Years” and “Dark Aged Over 13 Years” rums respectively, which are also good results.
We thank The Spirits Business for thoses medals, this is an honor for us !
