A premium Dominican Rum, made from fresh local sugar cane juice.

Based in Denmark, 1423 - World Class Spirits is a distributor of premium Spirits. Their story began at a Whisky fair in Denmark. Three friends Bintu, Joshua, and Glenn came to taste fine Whisky but fell in love with premium Rum instead. I guess you really can’t choose who you fall in love with, huh. Anyway, the friends soon bought their very own barrel of Rum and released it in 2009. Today, there are 5 proud owners (2 more friends wanted to be a part of the awesome project) of 1423 and they offer 3 brands: S.B.S, Ron Compañero, and Ron Esclavo.

Ron Esclavo is a brand of premium Rum, crafted from R to M in the Dominican Republic. Esclavo means ‘slave’ in Spanish and it’s there to remember the dark history of Rum. It’s made by Alcoholes Finos Dominicanos, the largest Spirits producer on the island. They harvest their own sugarcanes and everything from fermentation, distillation to bottling takes place in the Dominican Republic.

Ron Esclavo Gran Reserva is made from fresh sugar cane juice and aged tropically in a combo of American and French oak for 5 years. Bottled at 80 proof, this lovely premium Dominican Rum is pleasantly sweet but still complex with flavors of fresh vanilla, coffee, and dark chocolate. It's ideal for sipping neat or in tropical cocktails; whatever floats your boat!

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.
If the center of our galaxy had a signature scent, it would be Rum. Yup, astronomers studying a giant cloud in the Milky Way found a substance called ethyl formate, a chemical that smells suspiciously like Rum.
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.
Inspired, Pedro revived the brand, choosing the Dominican Republic as Oliver & Oliver’s new home.
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.
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.’
