Rum Distillery Matusalem Gran 15 Year Reserve

The history of the Matusalem distillery has ancient Cuban origins, when at the end of the 800th century the Spanish brothers Benjamin and Eduardo Camp together with Evaristo Alvarez decided to found it in Santiago de Cuba and to base production on the expensive "Solera" technique, which guaranteed a production of high quality rum. The name Matusalem refers precisely to the aging required by the distillates treated with this technique, which consists in arranging oak barrels on rows overlapping in a trapezoid shape, initially filling only those of the overlying row; year after a year a third of the distillate is transferred to the lower rows, while those above are filled with new rum; in this way the rum present below, used for trade, will be composed of distillates from different vintages and the complexity of the aroma will always be increased.

Even when after the Castro revolution the heirs of the founders were expropriated and exiled, the Matusalem Distillery maintained the same refined production techniques, relying on Dominican sugar cane very similar to that originally from Cuba. Over the years the production has expanded. and now includes rums of 7, 10, 18 and 23 years old, produced with different prices, but united by the “Solera” technique and the constant search for quality.
