The Heritage

“PASSION, DEDICATION & HARD WORK.”

These are not just words, these are the values that inspired Don Andres Brugal Montaner to found Brugal in Puerto Plata, back in 1888.

Since then, five generations of our family have lived and breathed these values. And it’s their journey that has truly made us who we are today.

Then

Don Andres Brugal Montaner moved to the Dominican Republic with one idea: to perfect the art of rum-making. So it was, that in 1888, the Brugal company – and the Brugal legend – was born.

Now

Nearly 130 years later, our rum is still crafted by the Brugal Family; only family members can become a ‘Maestro Ronero’. Jassil and Gustavo, from our 5th generation, now hold that honor.
