Brugal Papa Andres is the highest expression of the families Rum heritage.

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 of 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.

For generations, the family kept a special house blend just for family and friends. In 2018, they issued this very special edition, creating Brugal Papa Andres — named after their founder. The Rum is exceptional, but the first thing you see is the stunning crystal decanter with silver finish. They only made one thousand of those decanters, and that’s how many bottles will be sold. The Rum itself is a hand-selected blend of casks from their warehouses. Each year is completely different in every respect. Like life itself, each yearly release must be experienced for itself.

A little bit of etymology; nobody really knows where the word Rum comes from. The most popular suggestions are Rum (the Romani word for 'potent'), Rumbullion (an uproar), Saccharum (sugar in Latin), and Rummer (a Dutch drinking glass).
Rum used to be accepted as a form of currency in Europe and Australia, a practice we should probably bring back into fashion.
Mount Gay Rum is the oldest existing Rum company in the World dating back to 1705. This is also the year Guy Fawkes tried to blow up Britain’s Parliament.
Rum is a sugar cane based spirit, primarily made in the Caribbean and Latin America, but you can really find Rum in many corners of the world.
Next time you have a tipple of Rum you can say that you're tapping the Admiral. This intriguing phrase comes from the great Admiral Nelson who was killed in the battle of Trafalgar off of Spain. The story is that his body was preserved in Rum to be shipped back to England but, when the barrel arrived, some of the Rum was missing and said to have been siphoned off by some desperate or unknowing sailors. It's a great story but most likely false.
You might find Rum masquerading itself under other nom de plumes, like Ron, Rom and Rhum.
