A. Hardy USA, Ltd. to Represent Vizcaya Rums

DES PLAINES, ILLINOIS — A. Hardy USA, Ltd. is pleased to announce their new business partnership with Imex Spirits for the national distribution of the award winning Vizcaya Rum. A. Hardy USA, Ltd. president Mark Levinson is pleased to add this long established, superior quality Rum brand to his company’s expanding portfolio of high-end spirits. “Vizcaya Rum’s Cask 21 is the perfect niche brand in the premium sipping Rum category. And, Vizcaya’s Cask 12 premium rums are very marketable dark and light rums. We anticipate significant growth and interest in these premium rums as the popularity of high-end Caribbean rums increases in the U.S. market,” said Levinson.

Vizcaya rums are created in the Dominican Republic from ripe sugar cane that is pressed to collect its juices. The juice is filtered, fermented and distilled in small batches and then aged in oak barrels. Vizcaya rums are offered in three varieties: VXOP Cask 21, Cask 12 and Cristal.

Vizcaya VXOP Cask 21 is distilled from 100% pure sugar cane juice and features notes of butterscotch, nutmeg and vanilla. Vizcaya Cask 12 is a light bodied, premium dark rum with a buttery finish and notes of vanilla, cocoa and maple. Vizcaya Cristal is a white sipping rum with a smooth finish that features notes of vanilla, sherry and walnuts. All may be enjoyed neat or mixed in cocktails.

Vizcaya rum is 80 proof and 40% alcohol by volume. For more information about Vizcaya rum write A. Hardy USA, Ltd., 1400 Touhy Avenue, Suite 120, Des Plaines, IL 60018. Call (847) 298-2358 or view their web site at: www.ahardyusa.com
