La Occidental Guayabita del Pinar comes from the heart of the world's finest tobacco growing region, Pinar del Rio.
Not quite a rum (hence the word "ron" missing in the name), it can be described as a rum liqueur. The Guayabita refers to the fruit of small guava trees, indigenous to the Pinar del Rio area, which is used in its production – indeed, you'll often find one or two of those little guavas right there in the bottle!
It's a rustic, country beverage, very hard to come across in Havana, but very popular amongst the farmers from Pinar del Rio.
