In 1872 the company was founded in Santiago de Cuba by two brothers, Benjamin and Eduardo Camp. In 1872, the brothers, along with their partner Evaristo Álvarez, establish the Matusalem brand in Santiago de Cuba using a closely guarded secret formula. They combine their skills and expertise in the distillation and blending principles of the Solera system, which was originally developed to produce Spain’s famed wine, sherries, brandies, and cognacs. Today, Matusalem Rum is produced in the Dominican Republic, whose soils and climate create the highest quality sugar cane which is used in the family’s secret formula, under the watchful eyes of our master blenders. These master blenders are all descendants of the founders, and are faithfully committed to maintaining our centuries old technique of Solera blending. In the Solera blending process, various mature aged Caribbean rums are carefully blended with more exuberant rums to create exceptionally smooth, unique blends.
Clear appearance. Fragrant cotton candy, mocha, and coconut cream aromas. A silky entry leads to a dryish, light-to medium body with fruity, toasted coconut and subtle spice notes. Finishes smoothly with a dry, yet fruity, aftertaste. A brilliantly balanced and flavorful white rum.
