Matusalem Rum Distillery
© berevita.com | Ron Matusalem Rum Logo The exquisite Matusalem Rums come from the Dominican Republic. The Dominican Republic is known for excellent soil quality and the perfect climate which can produce high quality sugar cane. In 1872, two Spanish brothers Benjamin and Eduardo Camp and a Cuban gent named Evaristo Álvarez established the company Matusalem & Company in Santiago de Cuba.
The three master blenders joined their passion for Rum making together based on their extensive knowledge of the traditional Solera method of blending and distillation used for spirit production. The Solera blending process involves barrels of Rum in different stages of maturation being blended together to create a desired and unique blend.© loffit.abc.es |

The three passionate partners were convinced that they could create a classy liquor store, and so it happened. The exquisite and smooth products have sold very well both nationally and internationally and have found great prestige.
Because of political grievances Matusalem & Company was soon forced to relocate the production facility out of the country.
The first stop was the United States where soon it seemed that the production of Matusalem Rums was to come to an end due to neglect and on-going family feuds. In the mid-90’s Claudio Álvarez Salazar, a great-grandson of the original founder appropriated the rights to the Cuban brand and re-kindled the Distillery in 2002 in the Dominican Republic and his commitment to quality Rum production has remained the same.
The exotic Caribbean with its sun-drenched island states know how to make excellent spirits and bequeathed them quality and worldwide reputation. At the products and the production of Matusalem & Company has hardly changed after all this time.
The first class Matusalem Rums are still produced with the familiar Solera method with a traditional and undisclosed secret Cuban recipe. With the name Matusalem the founder alludes to those mentioned in the Bible's oldest people on Earth.
Thus the importance of long-term experience and the time-consuming ripening and storage process should be emphasized.
