Miracielo is a spiced rum produced in Guatemala by the same distillery that produces Botran. The recipe for this spiced rum dates back to 1953: an artisanal maceration of fresh plums, raisins and vanilla. The production is made in small quantities. The bottle is particularly neat, with a leather collar made and affixed by hand.
Compagnie des Indes Latino comes from a blend of rums essentially of "Spanish" type (60% comes from Guatemala) but not only, since a part of the rum which composes it comes from Guyana (English influence).The Spanish type brings the greediness while the English influence brings a touch of freshness. 5 years of aging in new barrels (bourbon) have allowed this rum to acquire its roundness and a rich palette of aromas. The rum was bottled without cold filtration.
Fiji is a great producer of sugar cane and therefore molasses (89,384.00 tons in 2018). A great part is exported but a part is used by the sole distillery of the island in order to produce rum in pot stills. These Fiji rums have a distinctive nose, powerful with spices.

It is a rum from Dominican Republic (approx. 80%) & Venezuela (approx. 20%), slowly infused with black pepper, ginger, liquorice, vanilla, nutmeg etc for 2 weeks.
