If you love rum, you should know that some of the very best brands are made in Puerto Rico. Puerto Rican rum sets the standard for quality. According to the website Rums of Puerto Rico, the reason the island’s rums are superior is because of the history of the liquor, as well as the stringent standards that must be followed by distillers. The website explains Puerto Rico’s history as a sugar cane grower, and how that crop helped create the rum industry on the island.
When you purchase Puerto Rican rum, it’s a great way to show your love for our island. You’re helping to support a territory of the United States, as well as the island’s economy. And, you’re choosing a high-quality product. Our rums are perfect for sharing with friends, gift-giving, and entertaining. Because there are so many delicious mixed drinks that can be made using rum, why not choose a bottle from a Puerto Rican distillery for your next get-together?
Puerto Rico is home to many fine rum distilleries, some more than a century old.
When you visit your local liquor store, you won’t likely find our rums on the bottom shelf. They may cost a little bit more than ones manufactured elsewhere, but we think once you try them, you’ll find they’re worth it. Look for these brands the next time you shop:
- Don Q
- Club Caribe
- Ron del Barrilito
