The brand Vacilon Rum has been around for over 60 years.
In the 1950s during the pre-revolutionary period, Vacilon was the favorite brand of Cubans. Its name means "party" or "joke".
After production stopped following the American embargo, it resumed in 2015 and started exporting.
Vacilon Rum is an agricultural rum produced by the distillery Heribero Duquesne located in the historic town of Remedios in Santa Clara.
Using still artisanal techniques, the fresh cane juice is pressed by hand and comes from Cuban cane fields.
Master distiller Lino Luis Pérez Rodriguez also makes 18- and 25-year-old versions that are also aged in American oak barrels.
