A perfectly-aged solera Rum from the Dominican Republic.
 
Juanillo Oliver came to Cuba as a member of the Spanish military in the mid-1800s. After his tour of duty ended, he stayed to work in the Rum industry to found Oliver and Oliver. In Cuba’s second war for independence, the plantation and distillery were destroyed. But a century later his great-great-grandson re-founded the family business — this time in the Dominican Republic. To this day they make some of the most sought-after Rums for consumers all over the world. More than twenty years ago they established a new brand name — Opthimus — that would allow them to also collect some of the best Rum distillates from existing distilleries in the Caribbean and Central America to add to their collection.
 
Opthimus is the high-end brand for Oliver and Oliver. Opthimus Rum 21 Year Old is truly exceptional. It is a 100% Dominican Rum aged in the solera method. And as you may remember, that means that it has small amounts of much older Rum mixed in. It is delicate, but full-flavored and well-rounded with dense notes of ripe fruits and tobacco. It goes down like a great Whiskey and is a pleasure to drink.

Rum used to be accepted as a form of currency in Europe and Australia, a practice we should probably bring back into fashion.
In 1993, Pedro Ramón Oliver López, Jaunillo’s great-grandson, journeyed back to his roots where he discovered hundreds of documents including the original formulas used by his great-grandfather years ago.
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.

Inspired, Pedro revived the brand, choosing the Dominican Republic as Oliver & Oliver’s new home.
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, but if it wouldn’t, it was ‘underproof.’
