Rhum Dominican Republic
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover Rhum

The most popular is the Extra Old Brugal rum, which was first produced in Puerto Plata in 1888 by Andrés Brugal Monyaner, the grandfather of the current owner. He learned everything in Cuba: the technique of blending, the cultivation of the sugar cane, the fermentation process, etc. Aged one to two years, white rum is the youngest and brown rum the oldest (aged 15 years and with an amber colour). It is aged in barrels that were used to produce the famous Sherry wine in Spain. The alcohol level varies from 38° to 43°. It is possible to purchase a litre of it for just £3.50 in the 'colmados' of the island (grocer's). The other popular rum in the Dominican Republic is Barcelo.
