Flor de Caña

Flor de Caña (Spanish, translated to "Flower of the Cane") is a brand of rum distributed by Compañía Licorera de Nicaragua which is headquartered in Managua, Nicaragua [ [http://www.clnsa.com.ni/company.html Welcome to CLNSA ] ] .

History

"Flor de Caña" is made by Compañía Licorera de Nicaragua, S.A, (CLNSA) a member of Grupo Pellas [ [http://www.grupopellas.com/ Grupo Pellas (Intro) ] ] . Compañía Licorera de Nicaragua was founded in 1937. Initially the company sought to develop a large sugarcane plantation so they built their first distillery in Chichigalpa (about 120km from Managua) in 1890.

After building the distillery, it wasn't until 1937 that Flor De Cana was introduced by CLNSA. Grupo Pellas was founded in 1950, it was the first company to distribute the rum, and in 1959 it was first exported to Venezuela, Costa Rica and other Central American countries.

During 1963 and 1965 the plantation in Chichigalpa underwent modernization updates, 8 years later a second distillery was constructed in Honduras. [http://www.theledger.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20040320/NEWS/403200351/1179 p7] The Plantation in Chichigalpa was completely modernized in 1996.

On November 9, 2007, the Compañía Licorera de Nicaragua, which produces Flor de Caña, launched a new rum called "Zeta". Zeta combines 4 year old rums with citrus. The rum is targeted toward young adults 18 and over.

Brand symbol

A distinctive aspect of Flor de Caña is its brand symbol present on all bottles. The logo depicts a road, with palm trees on the sides, that continues on to the horizon. A chain of volcanoes is also seen on the horizon. The symbol was inspired by the railroad, along with the palm trees on the sides, that led to the San Antonio sugar mill located in Chichigalpa, Nicaragua, where the Flor de Caña rum was first produced, and where it continues to be produced today. The volcano in the center seen on the horizon is the San Cristobal volcano, the tallest in Nicaragua.
