A big win for Nicaraguan rum Flor de Caña, known for its sustainably produced premium rum, as it was awarded "2019 Best Rum Distillery". This is the highest distinction granted by the International Rum Conference (IRC) at a global level, due to the quality of its products and because its distillery runs on 100% renewable energy. The IRC is one of the main rum conferences worldwide, bringing together international experts and personalities to highlight and award quality and excellence within the industry.

Still running with the momentum from winning "Best Rum Producer of the Year" in 2017 by the International Wine and Spirit Competition (IWSC) in the rum is known for being Fair Trade certified. From a 5th generation single family estate, it's enriched by an active volcano, naturally aged without sugar and distilled 100% with renewable energy.

Flor de Caña's commitment to excellence also includes the brand's efforts to protect and foster the well-being of its workers, the environment and the community. Flor de Caña is one of the first global spirit brands to be Fair Trade certified, ensuring consumers that the rum is produced in compliance with over 300 rigorous social, environmental and labor standards.

The Flor de Caña 25 Year and the Flor de Caña 12 Year expressions each won a Gold Medal during the IRC's 2019 Award Ceremony, which took place on Thursday,September 26 at the Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables, Florida
