Billed as being the first “aged red spiced rum spirit drink” (not strictly speaking a rum), Carta Fuego is aged for a minimum of a year in charred oak barrels, then blended and filtered through charcoal, before being mixed with natural flavours and spices.

It is designed to be served neat, with cola or as a shot with a few dashes of hot pepper sauce.
