CALICHE rum is the brainchild of nightlife aficionado Rande Gerber and sixth-generation rum maker Roberto Serrallés, whose legendary family has been producing rum in Puerto Rico for nearly 150 years. Blending in a small amount of Solera aged rums up to 30 years old, adds depth and complexity to this spirit. Distilled 5 times for an extra pure and smooth taste, Caliche has entered the market as the sustainably produced spirit that brings classic rum libations to a whole new level. Crystal clear and bursting with flavor notes of vanilla, oak, and caramel, Caliche Rum makes the perfect base spirit for the upcoming holiday season.
