Puerto Angel Rum Scores Big

Puerto Angel Rum from Double Eagle Imports scores high ratings with industry bigwigs.  Check it out.


imageDouble Eagle Import Ltd proudly announces that both age expressions of its Puerto Angel rum – Puerto Angel Blanco and Puerto Angel Amber – were awarded a 5 Stars “Classic” rating by F. Paul Pacult’s Spirit Journal, the most authoritative source of unbiased product reviews and ratings in the U.S. that are considered the gold standard within the distilled spirits industry.

“Classic” rating represents the Spirit Journal’s highest recommendation that is bestowed only on the rare, highly distinguished and distinctive distilled spirits, which represent a benchmark within their category. In his review, Mr. Pacult referred to Puerto Angel rum as “Superbly satisfying and as elegant as it is potent and uniquely charming.”

Puerto Angel rum already won two Gold Medals and received “Exceptional” rating from the Beverage Testing Institute in June of 2015 and the company expects its new rum to be well accepted by the USA consumers.

“We are thrilled that the exceptional quality of Puerto Angel rum has been recognized and validated by the esteemed industry experts. These accolades will be instrumental in developing distribution channels and creating consumer awareness,” says Marina Wilson, the President of Double Eagle Imports Ltd. “We are well positioned now to start building the brand in the U.S. market, and we hope that discerning buyers will equally appreciate Puerto Angel’s unique, exotic flavor profile and it’s exquisite presentation highlighting the product’s provenance, and it’s artisanal nature.”

Puerto Angel rum is handcrafted from the freshly pressed and naturally fermented juice of organic sugar cane that is cultivated at the distillery-owned plantation located in Oaxaca Mountains, Mexico. Unique combination of weather patterns, sun exposure, high altitudes and rich volcanic soils of this rugged, remote area results in the terroir-driven, exotic distillate. The spirit is double distilled in small batches in traditional pot stills to ensure unique and complex flavor profile as well as exceptional smoothness.

Puerto Angel Blanco is aged for 6 months in American oak barrels, while Amber matures in wood for 3 years. Puerto Angel is one of the very few rum brands that are honored by a USDA Organic certification.
