Pampero Rum was first crafted in 1938 by the son of a fisherman, Alejandro Hernandez. The original recipe introduced a distillation process unique to Venezuela. The sugar cane is harvested in the humid dry season, to produce a smoother cut of alcohol. The alcohol is then blended with the local Carbonero spring water which helps give this spirit its smooth, rounded flavour. In 1953, Pampero became the first Venezuelan rum to receive the “Norvean Seal” – the seal of approval from the government as a guarantee of excellence, awarded only to products of the highest quality.
Dark mahogany brown in colour. |The rum is a blend of 4 to 6 year old aged rums. Aromas of toffee, buttery caramel, roasted nuts and molasses are followed by hints of vanilla, bourbon and spice. The taste of warm molasses, toasted oak and creamy sweetness lead to a very smooth, long warm finish.
