HAVANA CLUB Añejo Clásico

TMA – Bacardi

Marking two decades of U.S. presence and celebrating the peak of Cuba’s cultural resurgence, HAVANA CLUB Puerto Rican Rum first unveiled Añejo Clásico to select states in summer 2016, along with new packaging, and a new ad campaign titled “The Golden Age, Aged Well.”

Joining the existing HAVANA CLUB Añejo Blanco offering, HAVANA CLUB Añejo Clásico begins with bases that are mellowed in oak casks between one to three years, before being chosen for selective filtration and blending. Upon blending, the Master Blenders return the rum to oak casks for a second mellowing period of at least three months for additional smoothness. The result is a golden liquid with robust notes of sweet fruits akin to pineapple and apricot, complemented by oaky notes with hints of almond and vanilla.

There is a rich history behind HAVANA CLUB Puerto Rican Rum, which epitomizes the ultimate convergence of two Cuban families – the Arechabala’s and the Bacardi’s – coming together to continue the legacy of this legendary brand. HAVANA CLUB Puerto Rican Rum is based on the original recipe created by the Arechabala family in Cuba in 1934, capturing the exuberant spirit of the Golden Age in Havana.

HAVANA CLUB Añejo Clásico Puerto Rican Rum is available for purchase (MSRP $21.99/750ml bottle) nationally in select retail locations.
