Zafra Master Reserve 21 Year Rum

, ,

Zafra Master Reserve 21 Year Rum is a premium rum aged 21 years in American oak casks. This Panamanian rum is distilled from molasses and masterfully blended. The casks are then carefully cellared under the watchful eye of Zafra’s Master Ronero, a former Cuban master blender.

In Spanish, Zafra refers to the act of harvesting sugarcane. It is the moment in time when nature rewards men for months of dedication and arduous labor. There is no Rum without Zafra. After the harvest, their skilled Master Distiller transforms the gathered cane into rum. Upon careful maturation in select Bourbon casks, the alchemy is complete. All the individual elements have undergone a special transformation into the aging of this Rum treasure “ZAFRA”.

The Distillery

Las Cabras Distillery was first erected in 1919 as a sugar mill. Since then ownership has passed between the government, international investors, and failed businessmen. In the mid-nineties, “Don Pancho” and Carlos Esquivel discovered the neglected warehouse. Beneath the overgrown grass they uncovered a copper column still with a small medallion inscribed with ‘Cincinnati 1922’. “Don Pancho’s” skills and experience were soon put to good use, and Las Cabras was transformed into one of the great rum distilleries of the world. The Stills at Las Cabras made by the American Copper & Brass Works in 1922.

Francisco “Don Pancho” J Fernandez is the Master Distiller at Las Cabres. While making rum in his native Cuba for more than 35 years, he mastered the “Cuban method” before moving to Panama in the early ’90s. Within a few years, he started producing rums in Panama following the traditional and revolutionary methods that he knows better than anyone. Minister of Cuban Rum for over 35 years and the man behind the Las Cabres Distillery for more than 15 years, “Don Pancho” also has a degree in biochemistry.

“Don Pancho” was mentored by his father, Don Antonio Fernandez Castro. “Pancho” began formulating his own products long before he officially entered the Cuban rum industry in the ’70s, where he would be taught the ways of ‘Carta Blanco Rum’ by Don Ramon “Ramoncito” Fernandez Corrales.
