Villa Rica rum is distilled from sugar cane cultivated in the centre-west region of Veracruz State at the foot of the Sierra Madre Oriental near the coast of the Gulf of Mexico. Veracruz is a place recognized for its humid, tropical weather which is the ideal climate for sugar cane plantations and spirit ageing. Two different types of sugar canes, which grow between 700 an 1400 meters above sea level, are used for Villa Rica rum. All water used for the production of rum comes from the Citlatépetl, Mexico’s highest volcano. Villa Rica matures in white oak barrels, previously used for Canadian whisky production.
Nose: Soft and elegant on the nose, nice hints of maturation, strong alcohol warmness delivering honeyed and toasted oak flavours together with nice exotic fruits.
Taste: Medium-plus body, very well structured, intense flavours as described on nose. Nice integration of alcohol acidity, great finesse
Finish: Warm persistent finish, flavours continue throughout taste, harmonious final, and sweet caramel echoing on the finish. Multi-layered flavours last long on the aftertaste
