Freshly harvested sugar cane is crushed and fermented using a proprietary strain of yeast for this Puerto Rican aged rum, distilled 5 times and aged in American white oak casks. The house’s premium offering is a blend of rums aged 3 to 12 years and Solera rums aged up to 20 years, creating a balance between sweet and dry that garnered a Silver medal at the 2013 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

"Gran Añejo is a great example of the dynamic trend toward more complex Puerto Rican rums while remaining elegant and balanced."

Product Details

Aging mellows the premium offering from the Puerto Rican rum house; it also coaxes out new flavors and aromas. A nose of caramelized oranges, citrus zest and herbal vegetables gives way to a palate with tropical fruits, caramel and vanilla. The finish has hints of salty minerals, molasses and coconuts. The rum is made with freshly harvested sugar cane, which is crushed and then fermented using a proprietary strain of yeast that’s been used for more than seventy-five years. After it’s distilled five times, it’s matured in American white oak casks; each bottle is a blend of rums aged three to twelve years, and Solera rums aged up to twenty years. The rum is brought to proof using water from the Río Inabón, which travels through Puerto Rico’s volcanic mountains and lends earthy, mineral-driven notes to the spirit. Its rare balance between dry and sweet earned this rum a Platinum medal at the 2013 SIP Awards.

About the Producer

In 1820, Don Juan Sebastian Serrallés emigrated from Spain and to the city of Ponce, Puerto Rico. Forty years later, his son founded Hacienda Teresa, a sugar plantation just outside the city borders in an area of ample sunlight and large flatlands perfect for growing sugarcane. In 1865, the Serrallés family began distilling the excess sugar cane harvested from Hacienda Teresa into rum, and today, third-generation master distiller Felix J. Serrallés, Jr. continues his family’s legacy.
