BRUGAL

Distillery
Founded in 1888
Brugal is one of several Rum producers based in the Dominican Republic, and the company was founded 1888, by Don Andres Brugal Montaner, but it wasn’t until 1920 that it produced the first aged Rum.

The modern production facilities at their Puerta Plata facility, built in 1986 ensure that the company can keep up with demand for what is now one of the biggest Rum brands in the world, particularly in Spain.

Rum production is via its highly efficient multi-column continuous distillation process, which results in a distillate that is by its own admission entirely neutral in character, hence the process relies entirely on the Spirit spending time in oak to develop character.

A few years ago, the company had a barrel issue which resulted in a batch of Rum displaying a degree of ‘funk’ that wasn’t particularly pleasant.

Fortunately, the brand's owners (Edrington) were able to step in and assist with its satisfactory resolution.

What does Brugal taste like?

The Flavour Spiral™ shows the most common flavours that you'll taste in Brugal Rum. It's based on all Brugal drinks in our large database and gives you a chance to taste Brugal before actually tasting it.

We invented Flavour Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.
