Captain Don Domingo de Cartavio, acquired the land where we now find Cartavio, in the year 1675 and was responsible for giving this city its name. It is now the name associated with this delicious brand of Peruvian rums.
The story of Cartavio Rum Company S.A.C.dates back as far as 1929. Located in the Chicama valley in Peru, this valley has an exceptional geography that is optimal for cultivating the highest quality sugarcane; due to its arid climate and pure nutrient rich water source coming from the Andes Mountains.
In 1953, they installed a 4000 litre John Dore pot still, made in England - yes a pot stilled rum from a Spanish colony! From the meticulous selection of initial ingredients to blending and ageing their rums in American, French and Slovenian oaks casks; everything is done with such precision that no details are left to chance in the crafting of these artisan masterpieces.
The traditional Old Rum of Solera is produced at the hacienda of Captain Don Domingo de Cartavio. The Old Rum of Solera is obtained with patience and special care based on tradition and experience. The Rum’s Master uses ancestral techniques to select and harmoniously blend a variety of rums from 5 to 15 years of ageing in Slovenian oak barrels.
Tasting Notes: During the ageing process the rums change to a very dark colour, at a harmonious balance, achieving roundness, maturity. They also add spices, light chocolate, light coffee, and dried fruits. The result is sweet and smooth rum. The high quality of this rum is evident through all the steps in its manufacturing process. Enjoy it alone or on the rocks.
