True emotions

LET black tears flow

Cuba is a place where people don’t hold back, where people express their true emotions. We want to tell the world the whole truth and nothing but the Cuban truth. Down to the seductive spices, the emotional blend and the passionate craftsmanship. Black Tears is all about emotions and it is inspired by the Cuban song Lagrimas Negras that tells the story of a young woman who sobbed into a vat of rum, filling it with her sorrow. This bottle is packed with emotions to celebrate the Cuba of today.

our rum

Black Tears is an emotional blend of Cuban rum and seductive Cuban spices. Based on a Silver Dry rum from one of the best distilleries on the island, Black Tears is the first ever Spiced Cuban Rum on the global market.

The bittersweet taste is what sets apart Black Tears from all other spiced rums, as well as its low sugar content, which is typical for Cuban rum. It is spiced with coffee and cacao which have played a large hand in Cuba’s history and aji dulce which is one of the most distinctive flavors in Cuban cuisine.

Black Tears is bright and clear, smoldering with cool golden intensity. It has a gentle and mysterious sweetness of cocoa accompanying the punch of coffee on the finish, along with the lingering, peppery trace of spice. The result is a very elegant and well-balanced spiced rum.
