HAVANA, Nov. 21th One of the latest products of Havana Club, rum “Union”, won in the past FIHAV 2015 Visual Communication Design Award for being the first Cuban rum designed to pair with cigars, another icon of the island.
Havana Club Union was born from collaboration between rum masters of that company and sommeliers of Habanos SA, another prestigious Cuban company.
The rum is created using bases of rum naturally aged in barrels and specifically selected to pair with Cohiba cigars.
‘Havana Club Unión and Cohiba Cigars represent distinguished expressions from the same soil and authentic tradition; their shared origins and rich heritage make them natural partners. It was an honour to collaborate with Cigar Sommelier Fernando Fernandez to create this prestige rum, which presents notes of sweet vanilla, chocolate and dried fruit flavours’.
The novelty of the drink, worthy of the prize for best design for its packaging, sobriety and elegance lies in the presence of sweet notes of vanilla, chocolate and nuts.
