Ron Barcelo is uniquely different from other Dominican rums because it is made from the fermented juice of sugarcane and not from molasses. The result is a smoother, more well-rounded taste.
Additionally, the sugarcane grown in the Dominican Republic that is the source for Ron Barcelo comes from fields owned by Barcelo & Co. The commitment to quality ensures that not only the best and most brilliant sugarcane goes into Ron Barcelo.
The history of Ron Barcelo started in 1930 with a young man’s dream. Born in Mallocra, Spain, Julian Barcelo arrived that year in the Dominican Republic and founded Barcelo & Co. In the city of Santo Domingo. It did not take long for Ron Barcelo to become an essential part of life among the local population, growing into one of the most prestigious rum brands in the Dominican Republic. Today, Ron Barcelo is sold in more than 50 countries worldwide where it is recognized as the leading premium rum from the Dominican Republic.
