Flor de Caña Rum: Sip the Warmer Seasons in with This Nicaraguan Rum

Flor de Caña Rum: Sip the Warmer Seasons in with This Nicaraguan Rum

The first day of summer is just a little over a month away. Rum is considered the quintessential summer spirit. While there are lots of delicious tropical rum cocktails to enjoy, we want to especially highlight three classic cocktails, from Flor de Caña rum, that are the opposite of refreshing, light, and fruity.

Flor de Caña Rum: Sip the Warmer Seasons in with This Nicaraguan Rum

Flor de Caña rum is a premium Nicaraguan sipping rum that is perfect for getting into the swing of the warmer seasons. A 5th generation, family-owned, award-winning, and premium Nicaraguan rum that is born and distilled at the base of the San Cristobal volcano. This area boasts highly fertile and mineral-rich soil that helps create rich molasses that allows Flor de Caña to craft an ultra-smooth and balanced rum.

Distilled 5x with 100% renewable energy, this range of rums is the only global spirit on the market that is both fair trade and carbon neutral! All Flor de Caña rums are naturally aged in premium bourbon barrels, without the addition of any artificial ingredients or sugar. The Flor de Caña family of rums include Flor de Caña 12, Flor de Caña 18, and Flor de Caña 25.
