This year, it is another week on the Yucatan peninsula and the search for new rum continues. In the province of Veracruz , the Villanueva family has been producing fine spirits for three generations. the town of Cordoba, has been famous for it's sugar cane and it's both the juice and molasses of this local cane that goes into the small batch production Los Valientes rums. The slow fermented juice of the Veracruz cane is double distilled in pot-stills, with only the heart is taken from the second distillation, then blended with column distilled, fast fermented, molasses from the same crop.
This is one that I will have to look for on this trip, Veracruz is North of Cancun, but I'll bet that I can find the Rum somewhere in the area.
