A light, crisp, barrel-aged Rum triple-filtered for something completely new.
 
Don Andrés Brugal Montaner founded Brugal & Co, in 1888 in the Dominican Republic near Puerto Plata — Silver Port — on the north side of the island. Five generations of the family have worked the stills and warehouses over the last 130 years. Only family members are allowed to be “Master Roneros” (Rum Masters). The current generation Master Roneros are Jassil Villanueva Quintana — the first female to hold the position — and her cousin Gustavo Ortega Zeller. They continue to produce highly regarded Rums in the local tradition across a range of seven finishes and styles.
 
Brugal Extra Dry is unique. In fact, for many of us, it’s the first time we’ve ever had something like this. So, what is it? It’s a perfectly clear barrel-aged Rum. Every drop is Brugal high-quality Rum aged two to five years in ex-Bourbon casks making a golden añejo Rum. But it is then triple filtered — removing all color and yielding a smoother silver Rum that sips like an infusion with an almost Grappa-like bite and a dry, almost Wine-like finish. You might almost call it crisp. And dare we say that this makes it perfect for mojitos.
 
Totally unique, right?

The Dominican Republic has had to achieve independence five times. A new constitution was ratified just a few years ago in 2015, bringing political stability and governance to the nation for the first time.

Corner
Rum is why we measure alcohol proof. To make sure Rum wasn’t watered down, it had to be ‘proven’ by soaking gunpowder with it. If it was ‘overproof’ (higher than 57.15 % vol.), then the gunpowder would ignite, if it wouldn’t, it was ‘underproof’.
