The Legendario Elixir de Cuba is a unique specialty. The liqueur used for its elaboration gives it an extraordinary touch. The exclusivity of this rum is due to the fact that it is not bottled immediately after the addition of liqueur, but about a month later. It ages for about 7 years.
It can be drunk alone or with ice. If you want to make cocktails, it is better to choose another range of Legendario, such as the Refine, the Dorado or the Ron Añejo Blanco.
The aged rums, stored in 2 and 4-year-old soleras in American oak barrels at 47º, are mixed with extracts of macerated grapes and demineralised water, which are left to rest for 30 days and then filtered with activated carbon and silica sand (traditional method). Only at the end of this process are they bottled.

PRODUCER: Legendario began to produce rum in 1946 in a small building in Havana converted into a distillery, the Bocoy Rum Factory. Luis Angel Álvares is the master distiller who has been producing this extremely pure rum for over thirty years. After the Cuban Revolution in 1965, spirits were produced for export, exploiting the characteristics of Bocoy to continue to produce them in the traditional way.
PARTICULAR PRODUCTION: Obtained by very old methods, using a special filtering system that, starting from a double bottom in the tanks, with the use of silica sand and activated carbon, allows the dilution of alcohol and aguardiente up to 55 °. Thanks to an exclusive method, from the tanks the liquids pass by gravity to a system in small American oak barrels ("soleras" of one, two, four and six years) where they will age. The special processing makes it a distillate of pure "sweetness". It is advisable to taste it only, well frozen or with two ice cubes. Excellent also as a base of cocktails.
Ron Legendario is known in Europe thanks to the work of the import company Legendary S.L. Valencia. However, the company 'Legendary Ron' was founded in Havana in 1946.More about the Producer
