Columbia Restaurant Offers Private Label Spirits

The Columbia, Florida’s oldest restaurant, has created a private label spirits line honoring the 106-year-old restaurant.  Don Casimiro Classic Silver Rum is named for Casimiro Hernandez, Sr., the “Don” of the Hernandez-Gonzmart generations, who left his home in Havana for a new life in Ybor City in 1902 and opened the original restaurant in Ybor City, cigar capital of the world. Chacho Bourbon Whiskey is named for Evelio “Chacho” Hernandez, Casimiro's youngest son, who roasted coffee for the family business for over 55 years.

Chacho Bourbon Whiskey is a small-batch, aged in oak, 121-proof bourbon. Don Casimiro Classic Silver Rum and Chacho Bourbon Whiskey will be served Columbia locations, and sold in their gift shops.

Columbia restaurant is located on Gulf Blvd at the Shoppes of Sand Key
