OUR MAESTROS RONEROS
5 Generations of Accumulated Expertise
Started by our patriarch Papa Andres in 1888, our Maestro Roneros knowledge, intuition and skill release the promise in every cask and blend. Their continued passion and dedication to achieve the best possible for over five generations provides the exceptional quality of Brugal.
Our current Maestros Roneros are Jassil Villanueva and Miguel Ripoll who are the both 5th generation descendants from our founder’s family. They are truly experts in their field. Embracing progression, and driven by the pursuit of perfection, Brugal’s ageing expertise and mastery of rum prospers.
Jassil is also Brugal’s, and the Dominican Republic’s, first female Maestra Ronera, bringing a new perspective and skills into the Brugal legacy and continuing the journey to create exceptional premium rum.
