La Progresiva De Vigia Mezcla 13 70cl 41%Vol
Hand-crafted by Bodega Vigia’s women rum maestros, La Progresiva 13 breaks new ground. Savour this elegant, dry rum like a fine Cognac or rare whiskey: with a twist of orange and a single large ice cube or room temperature in a balloon glass. The aromatics sing in a Progressive Old-Fashioned, a Cuban Negroni, or a Hemingway Daiquiri.
Cuba’s finest treasure, free at last:
In a sleepy settlement in central Cuba, a trove of fine heritage spirits gathered dust for years. On 6 October 2019, a precious bottling from these rare casks reaches the world: La Progresiva 13 by Vigia, a luxury sipping rum from Cuba.
Vigia – Cuba’s mark of quality:
Women master blenders craft La Progresiva from spirits grown in the red soil of Ciego de Ávila, central Cuba, where rum has been produced since 1577, at Bodega Vigia outside Havana. Vigia rums were originally reserved as gifts for visiting heads of state and the seal remains a mark of Cuban quality.
The word Vigia means “lookout” or “viewpoint”, and it was in Finca Vigía, next door to Bodega Vigia, that Ernest Hemingway wrote some of his greatest works, overlooking Havana and the sparkling Florida Straits. Today, the Vigia seal adorns every bottle of La Progresiva, honed by Bodega Vigia’s women master blenders into the dry, classically Cuban style that Hemingway loved so much.
