Brugal 1888 Rum

brugal 1888 133x300 Brugal 1888 RumAs one of the Caribbean’s most popular rums, it’s no surprise that Brugal has recently made a big splash in the UK.  Brugal is the only rum distilled, matured and bottled in the Dominican Republic, with all the ingredients sourced from local farms.  Available in a wide variety of styles, the dedication to their craft can be seen even at their base Blanco white rum, which actually starts life as a golden rum before being filtered and distilled to its purer state.  On the other side of the spectrum sits Brugal 1888, a truly special spirit that has been twice distilled and aged in American oak before a finish in Spanish oak sherry casks.  The result is a stunning depth of classic rich rum flavours, including caramel, Demerara sugar, a few perky spices and even a touch of smoke.  Mainstream range available from Sainsbury’s starting at £20. 1888 available from specialists for around £38. www.brugal-ron.com
