In the small town of Pesé, grows the world’s best sugarcane. Cane needs plenty of heat and rain, and Pesé is blessed with both. The region enjoys downpour nine months out of the year and a tropical heat that kills off the pests that plague other fields. Its volcanic soil has the ideal levels of acidity, helping to neutralize and purify the rainwater. This combination of climate and geology creates fruitful land and the richest cane. That’s where the finest rum starts.
