Miami celebrated the launch of Brugal 1888, the newest release from the world’s most refined rum; an extended-age, ultra-premium rum that is finished in Sherry casks.
The 1888 rum joins four other Brugal products currently available in the United States: aged white rum, gold rum, Anejo and Extra Viejo. Miami very first experienced this premium, sipping rum from the #1 rum in the Caribbean, at the event honored by the special appearance by Gustavo Ortega, representing the Brugal family, and one of the company’s Maestros Roneros.
The name of the rum commemorates the year that Andres Brugal Montaner started Brugal, beginning a legacy of five generations in the rum business. The founder was born in Spain and emigrated to Cuba, where he learned the rum business before moving to the Dominican Republic to start his own company.
