1960s

Ron Arecha Extra De Jose Arechabala S.A. Reserva Especial - 0,75l - This bottle is from the early 1960s. This isn't a Original Havana Club or an original rum from the Arechabalas. They never produced an other rum than Havana Club. I think this bottle was produced in the early 60s after the revolution and before they started with the new Havana Club Brand (La Giraldilla). Bottled in Cardenas, the former family distillery of the Arechabalas.

Havana Club Reserva II Fase V - 0,5l - 1999 - Just 440 bottlings for this very special bottle. Never sold in the normal way. Original discribtion from Havana Club/Cuba: Reserva II: a unique and rare rum. The classification “Reserva II” is a code from the distillery for the second reserve of unique and unrepeated aguardientes. This rum, produced in very low quantities, will never be commercialized, which makes it extremely rare. Blending and ageing: The first 4 phases. This rum started to be elaborated in 1978. Part of the distilled “aguardiente” was taken to the ageing cellars to be aged a first time in barrels. Then, the Maestros Roneros decided to proceed to blending and the product obtained was submitted to a second phase of ageing. It was then blended and aged again a third and fourth time. Each time, specific oak casks were selected for their age structure. During this complex process, the idea was to blend and start again the ageing process to manage the formation of compounds that are impossible to obtain with a single step. These four phases took place during a period of 20 years. The details of each phase, the blending to re-start the ageing process, the length in years of each phase and the kind of casks used for each of them are part of the Know-How and it is therefore kept very secret by our Maestros Roneros. Blending and ageing: The ultimate 5th phase. After 20 years, the rum was submitted to a fifth phase in glass bottles (inert material) so that without any new compounds from the wood, the transformations that guarantee the totality of the evolved tannins were slowly being completed during 12 years. These changes are very difficult to measure chemically and physically but they are perceptible by the smell and the taste for its extreme smoothness, its homogeneous body, its long finish and aroma and the disappearance of any volatile element that could be perceived as an alcoholic knock. Our Maestros call this whole long ageing process: “Redondeo Total” (Total Roundness).

Havana Club Edicion Profesional A Miniatur



Havana Club Edicion Profesional A - 0,7l - 2018 - Aprox. 12,000 bottles - The Professional Editions take a different tack: the maestros roneros collaborate with leading bartenders on the creation of an exclusive and innovative blend. The limited runs are thus developed with bartenders and exclusively for bartenders in order to be mixed in select top bars across the world. What does this mean in practice? For Professional Edition A, Floridita’s Alejandro Bolivar was asked to pick a style of rum he and his team would love to work with. He named Carta Blanca Extra, a long gone style of Cuban rum, extremely popular with cantineros in the 20’s and 30’s (think Havana Club 3 años aged a little more for added depth and complexity). After months of work with maestro ronero César Marti, the result of their collaboration was revealed at Floridita’s 200th anniversary. 12000 bottles of this white rum with the complexity of an aged rum are now about to fall in the hands of bartenders across the world.

Havana Club Edicion Profesional B - 0,7l - 2018 - Aprox. 12,000 bottles - The Professional Editions take a different tack: the maestros roneros collaborate with leading bartenders on the creation of an exclusive and innovative blend. The limited runs are thus developed with bartenders and exclusively for bartenders in order to be mixed in select top bars across the world. Professional Edition B is an altogether different beast, born of a small mistake. A few years ago, Havana Club unexpectedly received Islay whisky casks. The aged rums they unveiled after 12 months obviously did not fit within the current range, but could they be put to use in order to create a Cuban rum with a hint of smoke? Maestro Ronero Asbel Morales enlisted legendary UK barkeep Nick Strangeway to answer that question and come up with the perfect blend. The result of their work was subsequently fine-tuned with a panel of 7 top bartenders — smoke is unusual in rum and Asbel and Nick wanted to make sure its presence would not distract from the excellent rum bases used for the final blend.
