Legendary

The Legendary rum it is a rum with a strong Cuban identity, which is also expressed visually, with its beautiful bottle marked with the Cuban flag at the top. The shape of the Ron Legendario bottle it recalls the National Tree of Cuba (the Royal Palm) of which it reproduces the momentum and sinuosity, while the reference for the label is another Cuban classic: the shape of a cigar band. It is a bond that has its roots in a long history of Cuban rum that begins in 1919 when the North American company “Cuban Alcohol Refining Company” decided to found the Santa Cruz Distillery for the production of alcohol and liqueurs.



It was the heyday of Cuban rum, with more than a hundred producers starting to distil rum not only for local consumption, but also for export, especially to the United States. In 1937 the distillery became the property of the Compañía Cubana de Alcohol Industrial SA and in the 40s it began to develop and market new brands including Legendary Rum in 1946. The success of the Legendario rum and two other rums from the Compañía Cubana de Alcohol, the Ron Santa Cruz Carta Blanca and Santa Cruz Carta Oro, was not long in coming thanks to a successful advertising campaign whose slogan was “The three champions of rum”.



After the revolution of Fidel Castro, the Legendary Rum remained for some years in oblivion, as it was not part of the agreement signed by the Cuban government with Pernod Ricard for the export of rum which only contemplated the brand Havana Club. But the quality of Ron Legendario could not go unnoticed for long and thanks to the foresight of the Valencian company CEXVAL (Comercio Exterior Valenciano SA) since 1998 Rum Legendario is known in most of the world. After signing a complex agreement with the Cuban authorities, the Spaniards managed to acquire the Ron Legendario's trademark and the exclusive right to market the range of products that are imported with the identifying attributes of "100% Cuba Origin"

Legendary Rum

Legendario is a true Cuban ron, ron and not rum because this is the correct name used in the former Spanish colonies. They are ron that have the particularity of being produced with an assembly methodology, the Solera method which makes them different from all rums produced in the French and English colonies.

Rum Legendario 7 anni

What is commonly referred to as Rum Legendario 7 anni it is in effect a rum liqueur, since its alcohol content of 34% Vol. is less than 37,5% Vol., that is the minimum allowed to define a distillate as rum. The definition of Rum Legendario 7 anni refers to the years of aging of the rum which is the basis of this liqueur which on the official website of Legendario is defined as a rum punch. Actually Rum Legendario 7 years is part of the long tradition that led in the 700th century to mix the first rums (with a much rougher flavor than those of today) with sweet fruit or citrus fruits. It was therefore about those cocktails with fruit left to macerate that are usually defined punch and therefore rum punch is the most correct definition of Rum Legendario 7 anni.
