In its preparation the Havana Club Special is aged twice, for a richer and smoother flavor, it is a mixture of young and old rums created with a smooth and perfectly balanced flavor. Voted as the favorite rum of the best bartenders worldwide (Drinks International).
After the initial mix, HCE is dyed twice in younger white oak barrels, selected by the Cuban Club Masters of Havana Club; and in this way enhance the aromas of this liquid with soft notes of vanilla.

Made without added sugars, artificial colors or flavors, HCE is the perfect golden rum to prepare the best and most authentic Cuba Libre. Simply add a slice of fresh lime, ice and a bit of cola to enjoy this classic Cuban cocktail.
