“As champagne is to France, Rum is to Puerto Rico. Which means that rum-making in the island is serious business, governed by strict quality control guidelines and regulations, when it comes to rum, Puerto Rico is the land that sets the bar, we are THE RUM STANDARD. “- Mentions, Alexandra Salgado, Rums of Puerto Rico, Director.

In Puerto Rico all rums must adhere to strict standards by law: they must be aged at least 1 year, gold rums must be aged at least 2 years, and premium rums no less than 6 years. Additional quality standards include the requirement of using only the best molasses; aging in white oak barrels; and the production of rum by a continuous distillation process only (not a still). All these requirements add to the flavor and quality of the final product.

“Hurricane Maria was a challenge, but our Island is recovering and open for business. We want you to join our Pop-Up US Rum Tour so you can try our great rums and then, in March 2019 visit Puerto Rico for our famous rum festival “Taste of Rum”. - Said, Federico Hernandez - Partner at The Rum Lab.
