Sandinista Leeds

That simply means our home is your home... and as the Eagles sang... “you can check out anytime you like, but you can never leave” Thatcher apparently wanted to ban the word Sandinista, instigating the Clash’s choice of album title... ...anything that gets up her nose is good enough for us!!!

A revolution in Nicaragua, there’s no interference from America? those Washington bullets want Castro dead, Bacardi was never an option, join the Havana Club, Coca Cola were banned, for its invidious practices, The rebels joined the mix and the rum collection grew and grew, Sandinista Rumas did our hangovers, we adapted, we innovated and occasionally plain pilfered!

There’s so many faces to Sandinista! It has more aliases than Howard Marks and more lives than Keith Richards. Passion is not a fashion, This is ours Judge for yourself.
