Brugal Winter Cider

For those of you in the frozen north, Brugal pulls together a delightful cold-weather rum drink.  Enjoy!


Brugal Rum has made premium quality rums since 1888 when it was founded by Don Andres Brugal in the Dominican Republic.  His vision and experience has been passed on through five generations of the Brugal family, whose members have become part of a saga of expert artisans in the production of the finest rum, generation after generation.

Maestros Roneros are not only members of the Brugal Family legacy but also personal guardians of the entire rum making process. The Maestro Roneros painstakingly care for each and every stage of rum production before bestowing their personal seal of approval upon the final and exquisite results.

Today, Brugal Rum is the #3 rum in the world in terms of volume.  Its strong presence in the industrial development of the Dominican Republic, covering a widely diversified, dynamic, and consolidated range, is unmatched and is currently one of the most emblematic brands of its geographical surroundings.  Available in select U.S. markets, Brugal Rum continues to preserve the tradition, authenticity and quality for which it is famous.

Brugal 1888, best known for its smooth and full-bodied flavor, is best enjoyed neat or on the rocks.  But if you’d rather mix up a cocktail at home for your winter get-togethers, try the Winter Cider using Brugal Añejo Rum.  Here’s the recipe.  Enjoy!
