Since 1888 and for 5 generations, the Maestros Roneros from the Brugal Family have passionately produced rums that break with traditional ways.  It is through this legacy that 1888 is born.  1888 is a super-premium, complex rum that is double cask aged in American oak casks and Sherry casks to achieve a perfectly balanced rum. 

1888 is imported and marketed by Edrington Americas.  Edrington is based in Scotland and its portfolio of spirits led by The Macallan and Highland Park single malt scotch whiskies is enjoyed throughout the world.
