Arriving in the Dominican Republic in 1868, Don Andres Brugal was the first to age rum in barrels on the island. In 1888, he decided to found a brand in his name, whose signature would be the excellence of the ageing of his rums. Made from molasses from cane grown in the Dominican Republic and distilled in copper columns on site, Brugal distillates are then aged in cellars in the north of the country, in Puerto Plata, for a tropical aging. This crucial stage has been passed on and mastered for 5 generations by the Brugal cellar masters thanks to a meticulous selection of barrels from various origins in which the rum will mature. This know-how combined with the passion of the Brugal family reveals rums that are at once complex, fine and gourmet.
