Distillery: Fortin Distillery
Alcohol: 45% vol
Age: 13 years
The Castilla’s distillery was founded by the Diaz family in Piribebuy (Paraguay) in 1993. Through their name Fortin, meaning ”little fort” in Spanish, the rums produced pay tribute to the heroic past of the city. Also known for its sensitivity to ecological issues, the distillery elaborates all these rums a 100% organic manufacturing process. For this, their 1,500 hectares of sugar cane are cultivated without treatment and the harvest is always done manually. This rum matured in ex-Bourbon and ex-Fino casks and is limited to 3.657 bottles.
Tasting Notes: Open on the nose with vanilla, sweet spices and slightly woody notes. The mouth presents some fatness with exotic fruit, cinnamon and raw surgar cane aromas on mid-palate. A long and delicate finish.
