From the Distillery-
"From humble roots dating back to 1890 at the San Antonio Sugar Mill, in Chichigalpa, Nicaragua, Flor de Caña has grown to be Central America's leading brand of rum. The traditions and the heritage of the company have remained unchanged over the decades.
The first distillery was built at the San Antonio Sugar Mill in Chichigalpa, Nicaragua in 1890. Back then the young rums were the drink of choice for celebrating the the sugar cane harvest, with limited quantities of better tasting "aged" rums reserved for and savored by the proprietors of the mill. Founded by Francisco Alfredo Pellas the company is led today by the Pellas family's fifth generation. With their commitment to expert craftsmanship, the finest natural ingredients, and the unique Slow-Aged process."
