Tradition, heritage and quality make Santiago de Cuba an award winning rum! Santiago is the largest and most historic distillery in Cuba, producing 9,000,000 litres annually. The flavours of the rums come from the region's unique climate, an authentic high quality distillation process and selection of the world's best sugar cane. The heavenly fruit and spice notes in Santiago de Cuba rum is a result of the ageing process in selected oak barrels.
