Santiago de Cubal Siglo y 1/2
During the aftermath of the Cuban revolution in 1959, Fidel Castro began nationalising much of the country’s industry, including seizing control of its rum companies. Today, all Cuban rum production remains state-controlled, organised under the Cubaron SA company since 1993. Its biggest product is Havana Club (co-owned by Pernod-Ricard, who handle its promotion and distribution), but it has also manufactured smaller brands like this. Today they are all produced in one of or a combination of its four distilleries: Ronera Santa Cruz, Roneras Santiago de Cuba, Ronera Central and Ronera Cárdenas.
This rum is from the Santiago de Cuba distillery. The name is Spanish for "Treasure Island" and apparently bottles of this rum were often gifted by the Cuban government to various persons.
