MADRID, May 28 (NNN-EFE)–Jose Navarro, First Cuban Rum Master, gave a didactic lecture today at the World Rum Congress, running in Madrid this week.

The lecture entitled “Cuban Standard and rum production in Cuba” captured the interest of the participants, motivated by learning the secrets of the beverage produced in the island.

Navarro, who stated that this speech revealed much information of the details of Cuban spirits, said jokingly that he was keeping some secrets to himself.

“Producing rum is not mixing alcohols. A rum master should dominate all production processes, be ready to design the productive processes, and could not be a single distiller, ” he said.

Navarro presented a complicated table describing the mixtures of Cuban premium and white rums, and said that light rum was invented in Cuba in 1862 and its quality has been maintained till this day. –NNN-EFE
