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!
