Oliver & Oliver, a family owned business, has been producing blended rum for two decades, but in fact their rum history has much, much deeper roots. It started with Juanilo Oliver, a Spanish solider, who arrived in Cuba in mid-19th century and decided to take advantage of the ideal climate characteristics for rum making. The Oliver family definitely knew what they were doing, as they quickly gained the reputation of producing the best rum on this Caribbean island, which is an astonishing feat in itself.

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. With the arrival of war at the end of the century also came the abrupt end to Oliver rum. The legend remained, though. Still, it wasn’t until the late eighties that a member of the younger generation returned to Cuba to collect the treasured rum formulas used a hundred years before. The descendants committed themselves to revive the brand in the Dominican Republic using only the traditional methods and procedures. They decided not to distil their rum, but only buy the best available distillates in the Carribean to establish the perfect base to further age, mature and blend.

Ron Punta Cana Esplendido is yet another gem produced by the Dominican wizards. The Rum is named after the seaside paradise of Punta Cana, the land where the Atlantic meets the Caribbean and where one goes to truly enjoy the sweet life. If visiting Punta Cana is not quite on your itinerary at the moment, we suggest you try the next best thing. The 12 YO Rum is just as enjoyable if not sweeter. You’ll miss the sun, but appreciate the discount, since this Rum is extremely affordable considering the quality. Produced with the traditional solera method, it’s easy to drink, smooth and balanced. Make a sip, take the trip.

Alexander,
Brilliant Rum with a smooth, warm touch. Sweet also after sipping. Risky because you might think your body is capable of consuming without borders.
