French drinks group Belvédère has confirmed to just-drinks that it will launch a premium, aged Cuban rum worldwide this month. The company has signed an exclusive, five-year distribution with state-owned Cuban firm Cuba Ron to handle the company's Ron Cubay Carta Blanca Extra Viejo expression.

"We are a wines and spirits firm with vodka, whisky and cocktails in our portfolio. What has been missing is rum,” said Krzysztof Trylinski, Belvédère's chairman & CEO.

Ron Cubay is produced in Cuba and bottled in France.

Cuba Ron jointly owns Havana Club International, which controls the namesake Cuban rum brand with Pernod Ricard.
