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.

about black tears

our heritage

The Cuban way of living through emotions is reflected in everything they do. The way they make music and the way they socialize. They do it all with true emotions, with their soul. Holding nothing back. Black Tears is a true Cuban product of love inspired by the Cuban way of living.

The Cuban passion is reflected in every step of the Black Tears production. From the carefully selected seductive spices, to the connection to Cuban Vigia – a seal of high-quality rum.

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 dry 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.

–– – drink collection – ––

Our collection of drinks is serving you the very essence of true emotions, no matter the occasion.
Allow your taste buds to be seduced by this passionate craftsmanship. What is alive in you today? Have your pick and let black tears flow.

YOSVEL 💘
This is Yosvel, one of Havana’s most prominent artists in the alternative rap scene and director of the musical concept @newworld_losmalucos

Despite only being in his twenties, many would consider him a veteran in Havana’s creative bubble, as he entered the underground rap world at just seven years old... yep, he’s been around the block.

Growing up, Yosvel looked up to his older brothers, rappers that spent their days practicing at home. His parents eventually agreed that he could start rapping too as a hobby. He couldn’t yet read or write at only seven, so it was his dad who wrote his verses, which his mum then sung bit by bit for him to repeat back to her. That’s how he learnt to rap.

From there, he was plunged into the Cuban hip-hop movement that had been exploding on the island since the 90s. When Cuban rap legend X Alfonso decided to take Yosvel under his wing, that’s when everything really started to gain pace.

Some of X Alfonso’s most memorable music videos reveal “Yosvelito” rapping to camera on the streets of Cuba, shirtless, and front-toothless. Others show a teenage Yosvel being brought on stage at underground concerts rapping to thousands of fans. But this was only the beginning...

Who said cocktail night had to be difficult? As long as you have a top quality rum like @blacktearscubanspiced - a classic Cuba libre is the perfect vibe 🥃

REBIRTH 🌷
As well as her work as an artist, Kercia now has another important role to play in Havana’s future: raising the next generation of Cuban creatives. She recently welcomed her daughter Xelif into the world, and this has undoubtedly had a profound effect on her music.

“Motherhood is the most genuine manifestation of creation that a human being can have. Conception, pregnancy, birth, nurture, everything involved in the process of having a child is an artistic expression. In turn, this process also makes your creativity flourish”

Havana is pure syncretism. We are such a diverse and versatile society that when you get us all together what you get is a cultural richness. There’s never a piece of art we make that has the same type or tone, it’s always different.

This is the magic of Havana that we need to spread

The song Lágrimas Negras and the rum Black Tears harmonise so well because of Havana’s history and poeticism. What broken-hearted Habanero hasn’t gone to a bar here and sipped a little rum to help our tears flow. This is something that makes us who we are”

Kercia remembers the nerves she felt singing in public for the first time at a concert on the rooftop of @malecon663 🌹

It was this live performance that revealed where she needed to go with her life.

“I fell in love with the idea that I had this little piece of me that I could offer to people through my voice and that the audience accepted this piece of me so much! From that moment, everything clicked, I realised that this is what I liked to do and wanted to make a living out of. Singing brought me peace. The most important thing is to dedicate your life to something that you love instead of doing something only to make others happy”

Fellow musicians, what was your experience performing live for the first time? 🔥

Kercia doesn’t consider herself as having a fixed brand, vibe or look but changes her image daily depending on how she wakes up. She’s definitely an artist in a phase of experimentation and self-discovery.
 
“I am super chameleonic. The only consistent thing about me is that I want people to feel the energy I am transmitting in that given moment, whether I’m singing, drawing, or styling”
 
How would you describe Cuban style?
