The distinctive bottle design was developed with the career bartender in mind and features an ergonomic shape that allows for easy handling and pouring.
Created from sugar cane grown in the mineral-rich volcanic soil of Panama, Cana Brava is produced in the abandoned "Carta Blanca" style which inspired so many classic cocktails like the Daiquiri, El Presidente, Cuba Libre and Mojito. Cana Brava is expertly distilled at Las Cabres Distillery by Master Distiller and former Minister of Cuban Rum, Francisco "Don Pancho" J. Fernandez, then matured for three years in a combination of new, un-charred American oak and used American Whiskey barrels. The spirit was then carbon filtered and shipped to the Charbay Distillery in California where it was cut down to proof with pristine water from a well in Mendocino County. The result is a perfectly mixable light rum with complex aromas and flavors of sugar cane, citrus fruit, fresh grass, honey, coconut and molasses, complemented by notes of oak, vanilla, cacao butter and dark chocolate.
