Our alcohols, the perfect balance
we carry a perfect balance and combination between light and heavy alcohols. The light ones are generally those that come from distillation columns and are low in congeners (impurities some of which are favored for giving the desired sensory profiles). The heavy are generally those that come from the distillation in an alembic or pot and have a high content of congeners. This balance allows for an optimum aging time.
White Oak Barrels
Double aging, a differentiating element of our rums
They are a fundamental link in the success of the whole process. We are also very focused on insuring an equilibrium when blending aged rums, matured at length in barrels of American white oak without replacement of angel’s share, with our Limited Reserves of up to 25 years of aging. Thus, we uphold the undeniable truth in saying: “cane alcohol, water, wood, our masters blenders and time makes Carúpano’s Rum.”
Because some Carúpano old rums have been double aged. After mixing old rums with fresher ones, both with lengthy aging, sealed in white American oak barrels, without replacement of losses and Reserve Mothers aged for a long time, they are resealed, to start a new process of aging that will improve the flavor and make our rums even smoother and creamier with a more constant and prolonged finish.
