Puerto Rico is responsible for exporting over 70 percent of the rum consumed in the United States, that is why it is recognized as the rum capital of the world. When it comes to quality requirements, the rums of Puerto Rico set the standards.
Puerto Rico’s rum manufacturers use high-quality molasses and a continuous distillation process. The rums are aged for a minimum of one year in white oak barrels, to keep and ensure the quality and flavors that differentiates them. No other spirit in the world offers the spectrum of colors, textures, aromas and flavors.
Manufactures have very diverse products such as white, gold, dark, flavored and spiced rum. Among their brands you will find Don Q, Bacardí, Trigo, Ron del Barrilito, Club Caribe, Caliche and Coquí. Enjoy them neat or with your favorite mixer.
The Rums of Puerto Rico Program, a division of the Puerto Rico Industrial Development Company, was created in 1948 to boost the sugar cane industry providing with incentives and assisting in the marketing of the rum brands.
