Havana's Birthday


So we are drinking a...


Today is Havana's birthday, an occasion that its residents commemorate by walking around the ceiba tree next to El Templete, a shrine placed on the spot where Spanish colonists first said Mass on this day in 1519.

Founded as San Cristóbal de La Habana in a natural bay, the city is today the capital of Cuba and home to around four million people. It is also the epicentre of a vibrant cocktail culture that expanded and exploded thanks to the activities of the cantineros (bartenders) during Prohibition.

We are pretty sure you're already familiar with Cuba's most famous cocktails: the Mojito, the Daiquiri, the Presidente, the Cuba Libre, the Havana Special and, of course, the Papa Doble. So why not Havanatheone, fruity minty take on the island's iconic Daiquiri?
