Pacto Navio is a meticulous blend of aged Cuban rum bases.
Its unique flavour comes from its final selective finishing in French Sauternes wine casks.
This special ageing process is inspired by a tradition from the early 19th century.
THE STORY OF A JOURNEY
In the 19th century, the "Navios", merchant ships, sailed to the new world bringing French wines with them. After decanting the wine in Havana, the barrels would be filled with the finest Cuban rum for the return voyage, bringing a taste of the dark, sweet spirit back to Europe.
Over several months of sailing, stored away in the ship’s hold, the rum was allowed to develop unique aromas and rich flavors, imparted by the wine-soaked barrels.
But the war temporarily ended due to the mutually beneficial trade agreement.
Until the signing of the peace treaty "El Pacto" in 1815, which marked the return of the Navios.
Pacto Navio is a tribute to this story.
