Havana Club Anejo 3 Anos (Aged 3 years) is a white rum from the Cuban rum producers. With news of a possible embargo on Cuban products in the US I felt it a good time to review this staple of the UK and Europe’s style bars.
Distributed in the UK by Pernod-Ricard, Havana Club’s main competition comes from the Puerto Rican powerhoubse Bacardi. Which is distributed by Bacardi-Brown-Forman. Oddly I cannot think of many White Rums which have any kind of meaningful presence in the UK other than Havana Club and Bacardi. To be honest Bacardi has become such a byword for white rum that I doubt many people who drink Bacardi even realise it is rum!
