In the heart of the red earth of Ciego de Ávila, in the centre of Cuba, where spirits have been distilled since at least 1577, a dusty warehouse houses a treasure: a mountain of precious barrels of fine aged Cuban spirits.
An expressive and refined rum with a dry, soft character and notes of ripe citrus fruits, sugar cane honey and oak spice. La Progresiva 13 de Vigia takes Cuban rum beyond the Cuba Libre to the realm of luxury rum.
La Progresiva 13 was produced and matured under the Cuban quality seal de Vigia, a top brand developed exclusively as a gift for heads of state. Two female masterblenders are responsible for this exceptional rum. Hemingway, who lived next door to the distillery de Vigia, liked his rums and cocktails dry and unlike many highly sweetened modern rums, La Progresiva 13 contains only 5.5 grams of sugar per litre.
