Colour: Clear Crystal. Nose: Vanilla and coconut milk. Palate: Smooth honey and flowery touch.Finish: Pure, clean and gentle sugary finish. Destileria Porfidio, founded in the early 90s by Martin Grassl, was renowned the world over until recently as the producer of the number one brand of pure agave tequila, a range of spirits of exceptional quality. However, in April 2003 Porfidio released his 1998 vintage Porfidio Rum, a top quality pure cane rum, onto the world market. This exciting addition to its traditional portfolio of spirits, which is already acclaimed internationally by liquor connoisseurs, is the result of years of research into production and distillation processes of high quality rum. Destileria Porfidio will never compromise on the quality of the ingredients it demands for its pure cane Porfidio Rum. The vast majority of ordinary rum available is made from molasses, a cheap by-product of sugar refining. Molasses consists of indirect cane sugars which can not be converted into granulated sugar for the market, but can be used for industrial alcohol production. Premium single cane rum, by stark contrast, is made from freshly pressed sugar cane juice, undiluted and 100% pure. 30 to 40 kilos of fresh sugar cane are required to produce just one litre of this high quality cane spirit. For top quality rum, the sugar cane must be cut and processed within two days to ensure the best flavour. Fortunately for them, sugar cane flourishes in the sun-drenched soils of the coastal state of Nayarit, just one hour's drive from their facility at Puerto Vallarta. The cane is cut and loaded immediately onto trucks bound for Destileria Porfidio, leaving no time for the cane to degrade in the hot sunshine.Harvesting is done entirely by hand using the traditional machete, a long curved knife whose blade is honed to lethal sharpness. By avoiding the use of mechanical harvesters the expert pickers are able to select only the h

...We have just spent two fabulous weeks in Cabarete on the North coast of Dominican Republic, and I want to tell you all about it. We flew with Thomson and it cost us approx £600 each. Spending money, we probably spent around £400, not including our diving course.
First off a bit of geography, DomRep occupies one half of the island of Hispaniola. One of the larger islands in the Caribean...

The staff were very friendly and organised lots of activities including:- water...
