More information

The origin of this flavourful Vueltabajo liquor, as it is known today, cannot be exactly defined. However, it is known that at the end of the 16th century there were Spanish families settled on the Banks of the Cuyaguateje River in the River Pine province, and they first mixed the Vueltabajo liquor and sugar with the small fruit of the wildly grown guava tree.
 
The creation of Guayabita del Pinar started with Lucio Garay Zabala, an enterprising business man who assembled an alcohol producing factory in 1892. He already knew how this liquor made by his neighbours was used medicine and as a digestive so he had a good knowledge base for transforming this Vueltabajo liquor into a refined drink. Historians are sure that Garay Zabala contributed his ingenuity and knowledge, bringing the Guayabita to a peak of excellence that gained him fame in the rum market and also won him international awards.
 
River Pine, named first New Philippines, started to become populated in 1699. It acquired its actual name in 1776, influenced by the main population that lived next to the Guamá River and were surrounded by extensive woods of pine.
This province, located in the most western region of Cuba, expands 10.925 square kilometres and is divided by two mountain ranges. One is Sierra Del Rosario, a global biosphere reserve and the other is Sierra de los Organos, where the oldest caves in North America exist.

5 of 5 Stars!  \"Go West, young man, Go West & grow up with the country.\"  16/02/2015
by John J O'Mara

In Europe wild Guava does not grow so we use many the Sloe, Cherry, Plum, Apricot, Peach to en-fruit our raw spirits like gins, du mar, potíns, vodkas, rakis and so we have created our many and oldest liqueurs, from Sloe-Gins to Pacharan to Slibovitch and so on .... Officially since 1892 the Garay family took the local tipple and has created-by-improvement the unique Guayabita in Western Cuba. It is basically a Rum aged on oak for 5 years having been infused using the ripe berries of a locally unique small Guava bush. The result is in my opinion the most wonderful expression of perfumed fruitiness in a dry rum. It is a full strength 40%/v and this carries the length of the flavoured legs the palate enjoys. To achieve heaven on earth, i recommend accompanying your Guayabita with a cigar by Vegas Robaina (another great family name from the same western region of Cuba) !!. There is a synergy when these skilfully hand-made products from the same region are reunited with the respect they deserve ..... Finally I mentioned no wild guavas grow in Europe ... but it is said Queen Victoria had a favourite fruit grown in Cornwall (Western Britain) from plants originating in Chile which are, in fact, cousins of the "little-guava" or Guayabita del Pinar.
