700ml // 40.0% ABV
Spanish for “enchantress”, this rum celebrates the seductive beauty of Colombia’s natural landscape, the vibrant biodiversity of our Caribbean and the irreverent allure of a nation.
La Hechicera (etch-ee-seh-rah) is a fine, mature rum from the beating heart of the Colombian Caribbean. A blend of gracefully matured rums, aged between 12 and 21 years in American white oak casks. La Hechicera is exotically Latin with a dash of danger.
Our raw distillates are cherry-picked from the most seminal sugar cane havens in South America and the Caribbean, then tested meticulously for the organoleptic and physiochemical qualities that will blossom in the tropical microclimate of Barranquilla, Colombia.
Our singular solera method of ageing is a labour intensive process that not only demands in-depth knowledge of chemistry, but also a good deal of intuition. This is an intuition that our Maestro Ronero has honed through years of dedication at the forefront of the rum making process that has taken him from the manual labour of cutting sugar cane to the holistic understanding of the interaction between barrel, atmosphere, spirit and time.
Ours is a naturally ‘unpolished’ rum which means it retains the genuine qualities of the noble wood it breathes, it has not been rounded up with additives or sugar, its smoothness has been mellowing for decades.
Our process is true to the traditional way of making rum so that it does not require any polishing or ‘finishing’ to make it more palatable; any additive would only opaque its innate brilliance. The astounding result is evidenced by the simple fact that you can enjoy La Hechicera mellow crispness all night long, without the need to move on to something else.
La Hechicera comes from Colombia, the most bio-diverse nation on Earth per square kilometre. A country nestled between two majestic oceans, the point where north and south America meet, marked by three mountain ranges that protect a myriad of ecosystems, with tropical rainforests, cloud forests, mountain steppes, deserts and plains. Colombia is filled with incredibly diverse pockets of culture; a melting pot of races, music, dances and colours. The brand draws inspiration from its spectacular natural surroundings – the tropical rainforest of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, the world’s highest coastal mountain range.
