Everything started when i discovered the Vizcaya rum about a month ago.

I contacted the company right away and asked if there is a possibility of visiting their rum facility. Nancy de Blanck, the sales and export manager of the company without any hesitation agreed to my proposal. 10 emails, 2 phone calls and two weeks later I was there...

I decided to go there with Ramon the bartender from Hilton bar "Sol y sombra" who has a good knowledge about spirits, Kierstin our official DRA group photographer (good job) and Maria the beginning rum enthusiast.

Upon our arrival we were greeted by Ivette de Blanck, the head of the factory. She kindly took us to our first stop during this tour. The aging facility.

As always, when we got in our noses were blown away by the magical smell of aging rum! I enjoy that feeling every time I enter a place like that. Its something I can't get enough of.

A few minutes later Reiniel, the son of the master blender, joined us to explain us the whole process and philosophy of producing their rums...
