Sister Isles Rhum, a story that began more than 500 years ago, right at the same place where it ends today
It all started in 1486 at Hacienda Zorita, in Duero Valley, a former monastery, residence of the Dominican monks, where Columbus got the funding for his trip.
And right there, in the abbey that witnessed this encounter, is where our rhum from the isles of St Kitts & Nevis comes back to rest in the oak barrels where our finest wines were aged before.
- A Rhum, with “h” of hacienda
- A blend of a careful selection of the finest old rhums, 8 years average.
- Shipped from the British Caribbean to the Duero Valley.
- Put in hands of our wine ageing masters for its final “slow” ageing made at high altitude in Hacienda Zorita’s used-reserva wine barrels, which gives the aged rums its distinctive quality.
The Isles of St Kitts and Nevis, two tiny green islands, lying so close together that they merge in the distance. Discovered and ‘twined’ by Columbus when sailing west in pursuit of his dream after raising the funds from the Kingdom of Spain at Hacienda Zorita more than 500 years ago.
FIRST AGED IN OAK BARRELS AT THE CARIBBEAN AND THEN AGED IN THE FINEST RESERVA WINE BARRELS.
Following traditional ageing rules applied to premium Reserva wines, this vieux rhum is lastly aged in French and American oak barrels that have been used for the ‘Crianza’ of Reserva wines.
Exquisite, silky smooth with a long finish. Delicate notes of vanilla and toasted oak with a delicious influence from the finest Reserva wine casks where this rhum comes to finally rest at 800 metres above the sea level at Hacienda Zorita in Spain’s Duero Valley.
