Winery Info/ Brand
"We’ve been perfecting our craft for over 125 years, so we know a thing or two about the ideal ingredients. We crush the sugar cane grown in the Dominican Republic to create a dark, sweet and treacly liquid called molasses, a key ingredient in the rum making process"
Region Info/ Origin
Sugar cane is a dominant feature of the countryside on this tropical island that also is known for its cigars and local beer, Presidente. In the middle of the last century islanders from Anguilla used to come here to cut cane during the sugar cane harvest. Today most of that labor is done by nationals and Haitians who live on the western side of the island.
