Rumours tell that the Rums of Santiago de Cuba were Fidel Casto's favourite, although there is no evidence to substantiate this. Founded in 1862, and known as the official Rum of Cuba, every sip of Santiago de Cuba Rum stands for a sip of Cuban zest for life and spirit. Santiago de Cuba is produced in one of Cuba's largest distilleries, with 9 million litres of Rum produced annually. Cubans usually enjoy their rum pure. But of course it is also excellently suitable for cocktails and long drinks.
