Brugal are one of the big three “B’s” in rum production on the Dominican Republic. (Barceló and Bermudez are the other two) For those who do not know the Domician Republic is the politically divided island of Hispaniola. The remaining part of the island is Haiti.
A couple of years ago Brugal began re-branding their slightly dated bottles. This coincided (no doubt deliberately) as they began to expand into Europe. Since the re-launch Brugal can now be seen in most style and cocktail bars in the UK. More often than not it will be this rum and the XV which will be stocked.
