Rum Dominican Republic
Located between Cuba and Puerto Rico lies the Caribbean state of Hispaniola, which consists of Haiti and the Dominican Republic. The island was owned by Christopher Columbus in 1492 for the Spanish Crown, which did not please the natives. Sugar cane has been grown on the island since 1520. Cuban immigrants founded their rum distilleries there. Don Andrés Montaner, who emigrated from Spain, learned the art of rum production in Cuba and settled in the Dominican Republic, was one of them.
Even today, most companies are still family-owned and produce rum according to original recipes.
There are many reasons for the successful rum tradition: The tropical climate supports the development of the sugar cane plant optimally and it was made especially easy for immigrants to remain due to political stability and dreamlike landscapes. Despite the relatively manageable size of the island, rum producers like Barcelo managed to gain international recognition. Further information can be found in the Rum section.
Rum from the Dominican Republic is relatively similar to the Cuban taste, soft, mild to spicy wood, sweet and vanilla aromas come to the fore.
