About Brugal Papa Andres Rum 2018 Edition
During the latter half of the 19th century, Andrés Brugal
Montaner — a Spanish expatriate who had emigrated to Cuba — uprooted his family and decided to take up permanent residence in the Dominican Republic. While in Cuba, Brugal had begun experimenting with the distillation of sugar cane, and upon his arrival in the Dominican Republic in 1888, Brugal opened the doors to Brugal & Co. Distillery.
Today, the fourth and fifth generations of Brugal's direct descendants continue to honor the memory of their ancestors by acting as personal guardians of the entire rum-making process at Brugal & Co. Brugal.
The Brugal family recipe is a closely guarded secret, preserved in the hearts of a privileged few, passed down from generation to generation.
After going through the distillation process, Brugal Rums are aged for up to eight years in hand-picked American oak casks.
This expression is named after Brugal founder, Don Andres Brugal. This particular blend has been in the Brugal family for five generations. This limited edition 2015 Alegria— which translates to ‘joy’ in English, was created by Jassil Villanueva Quintana, the Brugal family’s first ever Maestra Ronera (female Master Blender). Alegria is a blend of rums from three different types of rare casks. The special bottle was designed by acclaimed Spanish artist Javier Mariscal, only 1,000 of these unique handmade decanters have been made.
