Cuban Gold Rush - Rum, Cigars & Oldtimers // NEW

Synopsis

The bar 'El Floridita' in the heart of Havana is considered the birthplace of the famous rum cocktail Daiquiri. Sugar cane, the main raw material for rum, happens to be the most important agricultural commodity on the Carribean island. Besides cigars and oldtimers, it is the main commodity that fuels the current Cuban Gold Rush and is an essential part of Cuban Culture.

Cuban Gold Rush shows one of the biggest distilleries on the 'sugar island': we get to follow the distillery process from sugarcane to molasses to rum, and from there, how this Cuban gold is shipped and distributed to bars and supermarkets around the world.
