Ron Barceló Rum
A tradition since the 1930s, Ron Barcelo Rum has been an important reference point for the Dominican Republic rum market. Quickly becoming widely known for its outstanding quality and taste, Barcelo Rum continues to set the tone for rums throughout the world. In 1992 the brand became international with excellent results, and was largely seen as a class of rum all on its own. The International Wine and Spirits Research group has selected Ron Barcelo as a member of the Elite Brands list, a prestigious family of brands that sell over 1 million cases, with markets outside of their standard consumer base purchasing at least 40%. Of the top 10, there are only two rums present, and Ron Barcelo is one of those exclusive brands. It's no wonder that this classic, premium rum has been recognized for its quality by the San Francisco World Spirit Competition, the International Wine and Spirit Competition, and was even awarded the highest score in history by the Beverage Tasting Institute of Chicago.
