— PLANTATION GRAN ANEJO—

EXTravaganza : rich AND SPICY

Each country has a pathway to sugar cane production, ensuring the sustainability and continuation of rum making in this region. Belize specifically has long ties with rum production, earning a reputation with the pirates of the epoch. Legend even claims that the foundation of Belize City is built on bottles of rum.
