Andrés Brugal rum

Brugal unveiled its newest and most exclusive expression of premium rum to date, Andrés Brugal.

The rum was crafted by fifth-generation Maestra Ronera Jassil Villanueva Quintana as an homage to founder Andrés Brugal’s pioneering spirit of exploration and generations of maestros who traveled the globe to share their craft. This is the brand’s first ever release that blends two double-aged reserves with first fill single casks. At $2,800 each, only 460 bottles are available worldwide, with 50 exclusively sold in the U.S.

Brugal and the Dominican Republic’s youngest and first ever female master of rum, Jassil’s vast knowledge of the casks around her is revealed in the array of local flavors found in this rare bottling. Andrés Brugal is equal parts personal tribute to the treasures of her homeland of Puerto Plata and reverence for all she has learned from the generations before her.

A staple of the Brugal family heritage, maestros are encouraged to pursue their own journey to bring out the very best of Brugal rum, progressively building on the accomplishments of their predecessors in a never-ending voyage of discovery that began with founder Don Andrés.

Settling in the Dominican Republic after journeying from Spain and Cuba, Don Andrés Brugal founded Brugal in 1888 with his sons. They cultivated sugar cane first and then began to distill rum, harnessing the warmth of the tropical sun to cask-age and imbue their spirit with complexity and flavor.

Don Andrés then set sail once again to share the very best of Dominican rum with the world, and each successive generation of Maestros has since followed in his footsteps. They mastered the nuanced art of cask selection and ageing, which led to the brand’s signature double ageing technique and use of Bourbon and Oloroso sherry casks.

This exclusive release is bottled in a limited-edition, hand-blown crystal decanter and presented in a bespoke display cabinet inspired by the iconic traveling cases earlier Maestros used in their voyages. Rendered from American oak, its exterior surfaces are etched with a diamond pattern redolent of the netting that surrounds many of Brugal’s bottles – a symbol of the need to protect precious cargo. These surfaces are subtly etched with a map of the world, symbolic of Brugal’s journey of excellence that began with the first journey of Don Andrés’ from Spain to the Caribbean.

Andrés Brugal (41.5% ABV) carries an SRP of $2,800.
