Divisions arose in the family relative to the control of the brand. However in 1995, 5th generation owners of Matusalem Claudio Alvarez reached an agreement with other members of his family. He settled in the Dominican Republic to perpetuate the methods used by his ancestors, yet unchallenged in the world of rum.
Made from various carefully selected Caribbean spirits, Matusalem rums are characterized by an extremely rich aromatic complexity, boasting extensive experience in rum ageing and blending. Maturation is done in charred white oak bourbon barrels.
