Over the past few months I’ve fallen in love with Ron Barcelo’s portfolio of delicious premium rums. Theirs is the only rum from the Dominican Republic that is distilled directly from the juice of freshly cut sugar cane. I was recently invited to the Dominican Republic to tour their production plant in San Pedro de Macoris, the top-rated tourist attraction in the province as per TripAdvisor, as well as their sugar cane fields. But not only that, myself and a few other journalists got to sample their entire portfolio of rums and stay at the sprawling Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Punta Cana. I’m still recovering, but in the meantime, here are some pictures.
Later this year, we’ll have an in-depth guide on how you, too, can go on a a tasting and touring trip of the Dominican Republic.
