Description:
Voted best Solera Rum in the world. Golden Barrel awards 2010.

Atlantico Rum, produced in the Dominican Republic, is a unique distinct dark rum that embodies tradition, sophistication, and hand crafted quality.

Appearance: Deep yellow, fat legs.
Nose: Vanilla and bread dough.
Palate: A shock of sweetness out front turns to caramel and butter rum.
Finish: The sugar cane sweetness returns as it clings to the palate and delivers a medium-length finish with some herbal notes and greater complexity.

The rum made its debut in South Florida and the Dominican Republic in October 2008, has already been described and praised by top spirits connoisseurs as "delicious, unlike anything else on the market" and a "Rum Masterpiece."

The process for Atlantico Rum begins with handpicking the finest small batched aged rums in the Dominican. Once selected, the rums are blended together under the watchful eye of the master blender and placed in small bourbon barrels (private casks) and aged again for 1 to 2 years.

This "marrying" process allows the different rums to interact with one another and produce a more complex spirit. Next, the rum is removed from the private casks and placed into another set of barrels and aged again for 15 to 25 years using the complex solera method (most typically used to produce sherry).

The weathering elements during the dry and rainy seasons, the topography, and the constant Caribbean sea breeze from the coastline of the Dominican Republic positively affect the wooden barrels and liquid contained within, further developing and enhancing the flavour, resulting in a final product that is incredibly complex and smooth.

Finally, the rum is bottled by hand and each bottle is carefully inspected, approved and hand initialled by its creators before shipping.

Multi-platinum recording artist Enrique Iglesias has partnered with Atlantico Rum. He was introduced to Atlantico by friends in Miami and was an instant fan. He then met co-founders, Brandon Lieb and Aleco Azqueta, and was immediately drawn to their entrepreneurial spirit and passion for developing a world-class product.

Producer Information

Founded in 2008 by Aleco Azqueta and Brandon Lieb, Atlantico Rum is produced at the Oliver & Oliver distillery in Hato Nuervo. Omar Lopez is a third generation master blender appointed to the brand.

"Our goal in launching Atlantico was to create world-class, handcrafted rums that will play a role in changing the perception of the rum category," says brand co-founder Brandon Lieb. "We want to help people discover that rums can be every bit as complex as single malts and small batch bourbons."

The Distillery
Juanillo Oliver, a Catalan and Mallorcan arrived in Cuba in mid-nineteenth century as a Spanish soldier and began the family lineage on the Caribbean island. After finishing his military service, instead of returning to the mainland, he decided to settle in the center of the island, in an area that later became known as Oliver, near the town of Las Placetas. It was here that he chose to raise his family and to begin the cultivation of tobacco and sugar cane. Shortly thereafter, the family started companies to take advantage of their crops. They built mills to grind sugar cane for the production of sugars and alcohols, starting very early in the artisanal production of rum and brandies. Both their rum and cigars were known in central Cuba and gave fortune and fame to the family.

With the arrival of the second War of Independence, separatists destroyed and burned the producing farms and ranches from the East to the Villaclara region, and so, in 1898, the Cubaney mills were destroyed. After Independence had been achieved, the family abandoned the sugar cane production and continued in the cultivation and production of tobacco and other businesses and agricultural activities until the year 1959; the arrival of the Revolution. In the years following 1959, many of the family members left Cuba and their descendants spread throughout the world.

In the late eighties, a member of the younger generation returned to Cuba and his curiosity led him to plunge into the family history, which he studied rigorously. Among the hundreds of files and documents he reviewed, he found the original formulas used by the family in the nineteenth century in their production of rum. Encouraged by the discovery, the descendants of Juanillo Oliver committed themselves to revive the Cuban rum. The Dominican Republic, sharing the characteristics of climate, topography, and geology with Cuba, was chosen as the ideal country to resume the manufacturing of the family rum.

In the early nineties, the Oliver family began to develop their rums in San Francisco de Macoris in the Dominican Republic. Cuban immigrant engineers and master blenders were hired for advice to help prepare the plant for the production of rum in the pure Cuban style. Since then, the same procedures, parameters and formulas set by these technicians remained and are still used by the present exiled master blenders and technicians, all with extensive experience in their professions.

The plant began by purchasing 100,000 liters of distillates and malts that had been aged for 15 years, forming the first stock production in the Casa Oliver which represented the basis of their mother rum and origin of the rums currently being bottled. The corporate reorganization under the corporate name of Oliver & Oliver took place in 1997, transferring the ownership of the plant and all its assets for subsequent operations.
