A simply brilliant Solera-aged Rum from the Dominican Republic that will make your mouth water.

Juanillo Oliver came to Cuba as 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 & 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.

Oliver & Oliver makes a range of premium Spirits. Their Opthimus range is designed to be the top-of-the-line for Rums in every way. Opthimus 25 Year Old Rum is a blend of Rums from the Dominican Republic that have been aged Solera-style in American and French oak casks. The Solera style means that casks are never completely emptied, allowing the blend to build up portions that are very old indeed and developing a deeply textured complexity of awesomeness.

Corner
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).
