There's a new contender in the quality rum scene - Caliche Rum. This new liquor is a product collaboration between Roberto Serralles of Destileria Serralles and Rande Gerber. Destileria Serrales is a renowned sixth-generation family owned rum business that has been producing the world's leading rums for over 145 years, including DonQ. Rande Gerber is not new to the scene either, as he is a prominent hospitality and nightlife impresario (not to mention the spouse of supermodel Cindy Crawford).
