Cuba has been given the nickname the "Isle of Rum" for a reason. Its rich sugar cane, tropical climate, and fertile soil are the basis on which Cuba's unique rums are built. Havana Club 3 Años is an authentic Cuban rum, 100% made and aged in Cuba.
To make Havana Club 3 Años, sugarcane is pressed and then heated to make honey. This is mixed with yeast, pure spring water, heated, and distilled before the most important ingredient is added: time. Havana Club 3 Años is aged for a minimum of three years in oak barrels. After two years, it is charcoal filtered to remove impurities before returning to the barrel for further maturation. This slow maturation in the tropical Cuban climate gives the rum its colour and allows a more complex flavour profile to develop.
Bartenders love Havana Club 3 Años as is it the only rum which will give your mojitos and daiquiris that true Cuban taste. A prestigious light rum, Havana Club 3 Años can be used in any cocktail to add freshness and character. Its flavour comes across as sweet, mild, and fruity with a touch of citrus. Pair it with spicy foods, sweet potatoes, and fish or sweet items such as almonds or watermelon.
