Notes of cocoa and chocolate, vanilla and toasted oak with the influence of red wine oaked ageing. Dark in color, exquisitely smooth with a lovely long finish.
A Caribbean Rhum with a Spanish finish! After distillation and ageing from between 6-8 years in the Caribbean, the rum is sent to the Duero Valley, where it receives a final refinement in the same oak barrels in which they age their premium Reserva wines. This final layer of ageing in used French & American oak barrels, gives Sister Isles Rhum a unique taste with complexity and a characteristic smoothness.
Why the 'Sister Isles'?
The Isles of St Kitts and Nevis, two tiny green islands, lying so close together that they merge in the distance. Discovered and ‘twined’ by Columbus when sailing west in pursuit of his dream after raising the funds from the Kingdom of Spain at Hacienda Zorita more than 500 years ago.
FIRST AGED IN OAK BARRELS AT THE CARIBBEAN AND THEN AGED IN THE FINEST RESERVA WINE BARRELS.
Sister Isles Rhum is a story that began more than 500 years ago, right at the same place where it ends today. It all started in 1486 at Hacienda Zorita, in Duero Valley, a former monastery, residence of the Dominican monks, where Columbus got the funding for his trip.
And right there, in the abbey that witnessed this encounter, is where the rhum from the isles of St Kitts & Nevis comes back to rest in the oak barrels where their finest wines were aged before. Named "Rhum" with the inclusion of the “h” of Hacienda!
