The company describes this Mexican rum (40% abv) as an “exotic and premium artisan rum, produced in a 15-year solera system, acquired by combining rums of different ageing profiles and blending in used raisin wine barrels”.

It is aimed at: “Contemporary adults, sociable, self confident, determined, independent, authentic, sophisticated quality seekers. Although they like to experiment and are open to new options, freedom, challenges and little things in life bring them happiness. Willing to pay for something that assures them unique and special experiences.”
