Sister Isles Wine Barrel Reserva Rhum
In the footsteps of Christopher Columbus
More than 500 years ago, navigator Christopher Columbus came across the sister islands of St. Kitts & Nevis on his second trip to the Caribbean. Two small, green islands that blend together when viewed from a distance. At that time Columbus gave St. Kitts the name Sant Jago, Saint Jacob. By falsifications of subsequent scouts this became the name of St. Kitts. The capital for his expedition was given to Columbus by the Spanish king on the Hacienda Zorita, a former convent, in the Douro Valley.
The Sister Wine Barrel Reserva Rhum is a blend of carefully selected rhums, an average of 8 years old. After maturing in oak barrels in the Caribbean climate, the Rhum is brought back to the Hacienda Zorita. The cellar masters there give the Rhum in Reserva barrels and are responsible for a particularly gentle and slow maturation. This gives the Rhum its unmistakable quality. Incidentally, the “h” in rhum stands for hacienda.
The storage 800 meters above sea level in the finest Reserva barrels gives the Sister Wine Barrel Reserva Rhum a special finish, paired with delicate notes of vanilla and roasted oak. Exquisite and silky soft.
