Eminente is a Cuban rum from the heart of an island locals call ‘Isla del Cocodrilo’, whose unusual shape resembles that of its native crocodile. Imagined by César Martí, the youngest
Cuban Maestro Ronero (Rum Master), Eminente is a rich and full-bodied rum that draws its inspiration from 19th-century Cuban eaux-de-vie, with all their complexity

Cuba, the largest island in the Caribbean, is a land of contrasting rums. Distinct regions of Cuba are home to various landscapes and qualities of soil, resulting in singular rums that vary in colour, taste and use. Occidente or Western-style rum is made near Havana: it is famous for being intense, dry, punchy – and perfect for cocktails. On the opposite side of the island, Oriente or Easternstyle rum is smooth, fruity and ideal for sipping. Eminente, from the Central province of Villa Clara, combines the best ofboth regions, in a perfect balancing act: refreshing and robust, smooth yet complex, ideal for both mixing and sipping. Surprisingly unknown outside of the island, this style of rum is one of Cuba’s best-kept secrets.
