Yolo Rum Lands Latin Band Legends ¡Suénalo! for Yolo Rum Clear VIP Launch Party

Yolo Rum Lands Latin Band Legends ¡Suénalo! for Yolo Rum Clear VIP Launch Party

Suenalo Yolo Rum Clear VIP Launch Party

Denver, CO, and Miami, FL (April 18, 2017) – Yolo Rum is delighted to announce ¡Suénalo! will be performing at the Yolo Rum Clear VIP Launch Party on Saturday, April 22, in Miami, Florida. The event takes place at the Miami Airport Convention Center, in the Poinciana Ballroom, from 7 to 10 p.m.

“We were looking for something special to gild the lily, so to speak,” says Yolo Rum founder Philip Guerin, “and we couldn’t be more ecstatic to have ¡Suénalo! help us celebrate the launch of Yolo Rum Clear.”

Featuring eight dynamic and talented musicians, ¡Suénalo! is Miami’s premier Latin rock band. The group blends Latin and Caribbean rhythms with rock, hip-hop, funk, and vocals in both English and Spanish. Honing its craft in the underground Miami club and warehouse scene, the band broke through to mainstream audiences in the mid 2000s. They will perform live for party goers and the Yolo crew and help celebrate the debut of Yolo Rum Clear.

At the heart of the Yolo Rum operation is master distiller Francisco “Don Pancho” Fernandez. Born in Cuba and operating out of the Republic of Panama, Don Pancho is the world’s most respected and honored ronero (that’s “rum blender,” for the layman). His latest creation is Yolo Rum Clear, the newest addition to Yolo Rum’s award-winning spirits line. A bridge between top-shelf Yolo Rum Gold and ideal mixer Yolo Rum Silver, Yolo Rum Clear is splendid for mixing or solo consumption, with a smooth, lightly smoked sweet-oak taste.

All Yolo Rums are gluten free, with no added sugar or molasses and no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives, and the company produces its products using revolutionary environmentally sustainable processes.

Offering boutique quality at exceptional value, Yolo Rum is the ideal synthesis of ancient crafts and modern tastes, and Yolo Rum Clear looks to be a worthy addition to the best rum line in the world. But come find out for yourself:

 starts with rare sugar cane strains found only in Central America and the Caribbean. The resulting specially prepared sugar cane juice is fermented and distilled through a complex, five-stage series, and then Don Pancho goes to work, dictating how and how long the rum is stored before choosing the blends he crafts into dark or light spirits. Aging in charred American white oak barrels does the rest.
