The Brugal distillery was founded in 1888, by Andrés Brugal Montaner. Over the next one hundred and twenty years the company grew steadily, and it is now one of the three largest distilling companies in the Dominican Republic. The original family which founded Brugal is still in the control. George Arzeno Brugal, is the current chairman, and most of the board members are direct descendants of the original company founder.
In fact, the Brugal Distillery has become an institution in the Dominican Republic. Pretty much every friend I have who has visited this wonderful Country has a vivid tale to tell of a an amazing bus ride to the distillery, …. and a tale to tell of how much fun it was to sample the rum.The Brugal Ron Anejo is a blend of rums aged from 2 to 5 years.
