Nicaragua

The Central American nation of Nicaragua is in the spotlight this week after Jack Brooksbank proposed to his long-term girlfriend Princess Eugenie during a holiday there.

Sandwiched between Costa Rica and Honduras, and with both Caribbean and Pacific coasts, Nicaragua is enjoying something of a tourism boom – overnight visits to the country rose by around 25 per cent last year, to almost two million, according to early estimates.

In fact, it was recently named one of Telegraph Travel’s top 20 destinations to visit in 2018. So what’s the big draw?

If neighbouring Costa Rica is a surfing paradise, then Nicaragua is a surfing secret: surf bunnies have been coming here as an alternative for years in search of Pacific waves along the coast’s secret coves. Among the best bases is the Mukul Resort, owned by the family behind the country’s Flor de Caña rum. Their four-day Ultimate Surf Package includes surfboard rental, surf excursions by boats to different breaks, including Veracruz and Rancho Santa Ana, and airport transfers.

Flor de Caña 25 Year

Flor de Caña 25 Year: As Roberto Serrallés touched upon, a warm climate spirit aged beyond 20 years is nothing short of a feat given the setbacks brought on by the climate. Flor de Caña’s 25 Year, which was released under the brand’s Centenario collection, is the highest marquee in the portfolio; it’s been aged in white oak bourbon barrels sealed with plantain leaves resulting in a very unique tropical flavor profile. This rum won “Best Rum of the Year 2017” at the International Rum Congress in Madrid.

Nicaragua is the #1 country to visit in Condé Nast’s “Top 10 Holiday Destinations in January 2018”

“Warning: a youthful wanderlust may return when you read this feature about Nicaragua. Quite possibly the Central American country that has it all: tropical rainforests and untouched beaches, fringed with palms, distant cloud-capped volcanoes, and recently some extraordinarily special eco-lodges. January has the double blessing of being the month with the best temperatures everywhere, and also the least rainfall (barely any at all) on Nicaragua’s Pacific Coast.”

One of our favorites in the aged rum category (a category which is growing by the day and becoming an ever-more-expensive habit) is the 25-year-old expression from Flor de Caña.

Flor de Caña is a Nicaraguan company that has been in production for 125 years (and owned by the same family for five generations), producing rums that range from the Ultra Lite 4-year-old expression all the way up to what we just mentioned, their Flor de Caña 25 Years.

The rum, once distilled, is aged in American white oak barrels that are sealed with plantain leaves. Because of the temperature and climate of Nicaragua (and the fact that the distillery sits at the base of the most active volcano in the country, San Cristóbal), the rums are “slow-aged.” While the process takes little longer, the flavors that come out are well beyond their years, and also free of other ingredients like accelerants or additional sugar. The 25-year mark, according to global brand ambassador Mauricio Solórzano, is the perfect age for the rum — it brings out the best flavors without getting too much from the wood, which could ruin the product by making it become too tannic, etc.

About Flor de Caña
Flor de Caña, Nicaragua’s #1 exported brand, is present in over 40 countries worldwide and is one of the fastest growing premium rum brands in the United States. With more than 125 years and 5 generations of family tradition, Flor de Caña has been recognized as the world’s best rum in prestigious international competitions in London, Madrid, San Francisco and Chicago. Flor de Caña, the leading premium rum in Central America, is manufactured and distributed by Compañía Licorera de Nicaragua, S.A. (CLNSA).

“The brand is immensely patriotic—it’s a family-tradition rum born in 1875—so it makes perfect sense that they asked artist Augusto Silva Gómez to design their new Legacy Box packaging. Bilwi-born, Mina Rosita-raised Gómez paints artworks that truly celebrate Nicaragua and its people. The special packaging has just been released, and we spoke with Gómez about the project, which involved him painting two pieces—taking around three months.”
