Source: Award-winning Yolo Rum Expands Popular Brand to Include Yolo Rum Clear
DENVER and PANAMA CITY, April 11, 2017 (PRNewswire) — Yolo Rum is delighted to announce the newest addition to its line of premium spirits: Yolo Rum Clear. Joining Yolo Rum Gold and Yolo Rum Silver, Yolo Rum Clear is boutique-quality rum that isn’t priced like it.
“For a long time now, we’ve wanted to produce an affordable, connoisseur-worthy rum blend,” says Yolo Rum founder Philip Guerin. “And Don Pancho has once again knocked it out of the park.”
At the heart of the Yolo Rum operation is master distiller Francisco “Don Pancho” Fernandez. Born in Cuba and operating out of the Republic of Panama, Don Pancho is the world’s most respected and honored ronero (that’s “rum blender,” for the layman). The recipient of hundreds of awards, Don Pancho starts with rare sugar cane strains found only in Central America and the Caribbean. The resulting specially prepared sugar cane juice is fermented and distilled through a complex, five-stage series, and then Don Pancho goes to work, dictating how and how long the rum is stored before choosing the blends he crafts into dark or light spirits. Aging in charred American white oak barrels does the rest.
Yolo Rum features three distinct blends for rum aficionados. Top-shelf Yolo Rum Gold enjoys a 10-year aging process that gives it a rich, tawny color and smooth buttery taste. Two-year-aged Yolo Rum Silver is the world’s premium rum for mixing—if you like vodka, you’ll love Yolo Rum Silver. And now Yolo Rum Clear is a bridge between the two, ideal for mixing or solo consumption, with a smooth, lightly smoked sweet-oak taste. It is truly small-batch-quality rum available at a real steal.
All Yolo Rums are gluten free, with no added sugar or molasses and no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives, and the company produces its products using revolutionary environmentally sustainable processes. Yolo Rum has received multiple Best-of-Class wins from Spirits of the Americas, won multiple gold medals at the Denver International Spirits Competition and taken home multiple gold medals at the Miami Rum Renaissance Festival.
Offering boutique quality at exceptional value, Yolo Rum is the ideal synthesis of ancient crafts and modern tastes, and Yolo Rum Clear looks to be a worthy addition to the best rum line in the world.
