In the 1930s, Matusalem became the first rum brand in Cuba. Founded in 1872, the distillery developed its secret formula and became hugely successful, until Fidel Castro came into power and sent the Alvarez family into exile.


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.

Colour: amber, copper and ochre.

Nose: refined and complex. Dried fruits and caramel aromas.

Palate: smooth and velvety, with oaky cocoa and cigar leaves. A beautiful structure with great finesse.

Finish: a complex and strong lasting finale.

 

When reappearing in 1999, voted "Best rum in the world", by the American Institute of Taste.
