Like malt whiskey, Nicaragua's Flor de Caña distillery is bringing its rum to the world
The Flor de Caña distillery nearly went under during the Sandinista revolution — but with that episode past, the rum maker is growing and expanding.
The appetite for high-quality rum is growing, like the popularity of single-malt whiskey. Most rum is aged just a few years; Flor de Caña also sells bottles of 12, 18 and 21-year-old rum.
Rum-making tours are on the rise amid a boom in tourism, and the company’s building a Flor de Caña museum and theme park.
