January 10th, 1929 marked the start of a grand journey for a young Majorcan named Julián Barceló. This day he left Mallorca, his native island, to travel to the Dominican Republic in search of new challenges. Once in Santa Domingo he started the great adventure of creating his own distillery.
Barcelo & Co was founded in 1930. As with all businesses, the first few years were difficult. Julián took his old Ford van and tirelessly promoted his quality rums to all corners of the country without much success. However, as time passed his efforts were rewarded and Barceló & Co was transformed into a national industry power.
When Julián Barceló passed away, his nephew Miguel Barceló managed the direction of the company, continuing with his uncle´s methods and beliefs, and the company was further transformed into a basic pillar of the Dominican economy.
Columbus Reserve 7 Years comes directly from the original company that created Barceló rum (Barceló & Co) which also produces White Columbus, Columbus Gold and Columbus Vintage. Columbus has no relation with the current Barceló brand, but proceeds from the original manufacturer of rum, Barceló & CO.
Columbus rum is aged for 7 years until it reaches perfection in carefully selected American oak barrels. It is a full bodied rum with a fine texture that is best enjoyed solo, but is also delicious prepared as a cocktail. This sensual vintage reflects the color of the warm Caribbean sunsets and is considered one of the world´s finest rums.
