Next is our flagship brand, the Matusalem Gran Reserva Solera 15. Known as “The Cognac of Rums”, this super premium rum is perfect for those seeking exceptional quality and exquisite flavor. Complex, yet velvety smooth pronounced bouquet and flavor with a cognac-like finish.
And finally we have our Matusalem Solera 7. A beautiful golden rum with exceptional smoothness and pronounced endnote, this rum is intriguing for its excellent quality and traditional flavor in the strongest Cuban tradition. A competitively priced premium rum exceptional in its mixability.
Why having choosen Rhum Fest Paris to exhibit ?
We have been exhibiting at Rhumfest for several years now as it is always an interesting mix of consumers who are passionate about rum and are keen to explore the abundant array of flavours & styles present together with the more serious professional, trade members who are just keen to reacquaint themselves with the brands and brand representatives. The interaction with both groups is always a valuable experience as feedback on your brand is always forthcoming.
