The history of Barceló Rum started in 1930 with a young man’s dream. Born in Mallorca Spain, Julián Barceló arrived in the Dominican Republic and founded Barceló. It did not take long for Barceló Rum to become an essential part of life among the local population. Today, Barceló Rum is the Dominican Republic’s #1 exported rum brand and the #1 exported dark rum brand in the world. Barceló Rum is uniquely different from other Dominican rums because it is made from the fermented juice of sugar cane and not from molasses. The result is a smoother, more well-rounded taste that showcases more of the actual characteristics of the sugar cane. Additionally, the sugar cane that is the source for Barceló Rum is estate grown in the Dominican Republic (versus other rum producers who source sugar cane or molasses from third party suppliers). This commitment to quality ensures that only the best and most brilliant sugar cane goes into Barceló Rum.
Barceló Imperial Onyx possesses an amber mahogany colour with a robust structured body. The taste profile features toasted aromas with a subtle touch of cherry, coffee and dried fruits as well as deep notes of wood and vanilla, creating an intense sensation that ends with a long and persistent aftertaste.
