In 2018, Ljubo didn’t resist the miracle of multiplication. After the wine, the beer, the late harvest, the aguardente, he decided to create his first Rum. Refugees is the name of the blend signed by Ljubomir Stanisic, aged for two years in the warehouses of Licores Serrano, in Serra da Estrela. Made from sugar cane – originally from Syria, in ancient Persia – it migrated along the Mediterranean Sea to the south of Spain, where it is distilled, and finally arrived in Portugal where it found refuge. After aging in barrels of French oak, where previously had passed whisky, Ginja liqueur and Douro wine, Refugees Rum was born.
A story is told in bottles, all numbered, and illustrated by Mário Belém, with images that take us to the Middle East. A story with a mission that particularly touches this son of Sarajevo: to support the refugees, to contribute to the possibility of a happier ending, as part of the value of sales reverts in favor of JRS – Jesuit Refugee Service, an institution that supports refugees in Portugal.
