In a harmonious marriage of refined opulence and the vibrant spirit of the Caribbean, Candela Mamajuana Spiced Rum proudly presents its latest masterpiece – Candela MAREA. This bespoke limited-edition rum, exclusively crafted for The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection, sets sail as a tribute to the lavish yachting lifestyle and the tantalizing essence of Caribbean tastes. With its genesis deeply rooted in the Dominican Republic, this extraordinary libation embodies the perfect union of premium aged rum and handpicked, locally sourced ingredients.

A Nautical Symphony of Flavors

Candela MAREA beckons connoisseurs of both fine spirits and lavish travel to embark on a journey into indulgence. Expertly concocted in the heart of the Dominican Republic, this ultra-premium spiced rum derives its exquisite character from a meticulous blend of extra-aged Gran Reserva Dominican rum, enriched with notes of honey and a medley of spices. What sets it apart is its commitment to authenticity, eschewing artificial colors and flavors in favor of the natural essence of the Caribbean.

As the sun-kissed aroma of rosewood and honey permeates the senses, one’s palate is treated to a symphony of flavors that crescendos into a long, warming spice finish. This carefully crafted elixir encapsulates the essence of calm waters and the relaxed ambiance of yachting, truly inviting guests to bask in the serenity of the moment.

A Partnership of Distinction

Alejandro Russo, the CEO and Co-Founder of Candela Mamajuana, expresses his delight at the collaboration, stating, “We are delighted for the extraordinary opportunity to introduce our distinctive flavors to the world’s most discerning travelers on board Evrima. The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection offers unmatched travel experiences for guests, and our mission to share the most premium flavors and ingredients of Dominican rum aligns perfectly with their world-class standards.”

Ivan Ortega, Director of Food & Beverage of The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection, shares the sentiment, saying, “We are thrilled to join forces with Candela to offer our guests the chance to savor authentic Caribbean flavors through an exclusive rum. Collaborating with visionary partners such as Candela allows us to curate indulgent experiences with coveted delights like MAREA, taking the guest journey to unparalleled heights.”

A Sustainable Voyage

Behind the scenes, Candela MAREA not only tantalizes the taste buds but also champions sustainable practices. Distilled from fresh-pressed local sugarcane juice, this exquisite nectar is produced using a process powered by renewable energy. The sugarcane bagasse, a byproduct of this process, is ingeniously transformed into biofuel at a waste-to-energy plant on the island. The rum then finds its home within American oak barrels, maturing into perfection.

Candela Mamajuana’s commitment to sustainability extends to their aging facility, where rainwater is collected and utilized in a water purification plant. Additionally, the facility employs innovative architectural features like intelligent building materials and natural cooling mechanisms to reduce energy consumption. It’s no wonder that these eco-conscious practices have earned Candela Mamajuana the title of “The World’s Most Sustainable Rum” by the DailyMail UK.

A Culinary Odyssey

Guests aboard the Evrima are treated to an immersive culinary adventure with Candela MAREA at its core. The rum finds its way into a diverse range of delectable offerings across the yacht’s dining venues and bars. Whether savored neat, on the rocks, or incorporated into creative cocktails such as the tantalizing Crow’s Nest – a tropical blend of Candela MAREA, Campari, pineapple, and lime – guests are enveloped in a world of unrivaled flavors.

To elevate the experience further, the yacht boasts The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection x Candela MAREA Drip Tower, an exquisite glass tower that employs slow-drip technology to craft complex, aromatic cocktails that awaken the senses.

A Legacy of Passion

The creation of Candela Mamajuana Spiced Rum is a testament to the shared vision of a mother-son duo, Lillian Arinoviche and Alejandro Russo. Drawing on their entrepreneurial, fashion, and leadership backgrounds, they’ve transformed an age-old Dominican tradition into a global sensation. Bestowed with the title of “The Unofficial Drink of the Dominican Republic” by Fodor’s Travel, Candela Mamajuana has garnered accolades from esteemed publications such as Forbes, People en Español, Us Weekly, NBC, and more.

As the fastest-growing super-premium spiced rum in the state of Florida, with a remarkable 35% growth in the past year, Candela Mamajuana continues to make waves. Distribution has surged even more dramatically, boasting a staggering 576% growth in accounts sold.

Setting Sail into Uncharted Horizons

Candela MAREA doesn’t merely tantalize the taste buds; it encapsulates the spirit of luxurious yachting, Caribbean mystique, and sustainable craftsmanship. With every sip, guests aboard the Evrima are invited to indulge in an experience that transcends the ordinary, elevating the voyage into a symphony of flavors and a celebration of visionary partnerships. As the first custom-built superyacht of The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection, Evrima is now an exclusive vessel for this extraordinary nectar, embodying the essence of luxury, sustainability, and Caribbean allure.
