Recently named the “World’s Best Tasting White Rum,” by the 2013 Beverage Tasting Institute, CALICHE is the premium white rum from  impresario, Rande Gerber, and sixth-generation rum maker, Roberto Serralles, whose legendary family has been producing rum in Puerto Rico for nearly 150 years.
Unlike most white rums on the market, Caliche is made from a blend of four different aged rums.
To make the perfect daiquiri according to Brand Ambassador, Esteban Ordonez, it all begins with three essential ingredients: Caliche rum, agave nectar and lime juice! Obviously, the most vital ingredient is Caliche Rum. Its soft citrus essence delivers that essential crisp note to the daiquiri.
From The Jimmy bar at the James Hotel to Michelin 3-Star landmark, Le Bernardin -- New York’s top restaurants and lounges are featuring Caliche rum in a combination of classic and innovative cocktail recipes to pay tribute to this timeless spirit.
