Truth be told, Ron del Barrilito's timeline isn't very exciting. Almost 140 years ago, we found a way to craft world-class rum. Today, we're still making rum in the same way. Change is not our thing. Every single bottle of Ron del Barrilito holds premium rum that has been crafted by hand using the same methods since 1880. It's always been made in very small batches. Absolutely no artificial ingredients or colorings are used. It's aged to perfection in vintage American white oak sherry barrels. The only differentiating factor between the varieties of Ron del Barrilito is simply time. Great rum takes years to come into its own. And different aging periods yield different flavor profiles.
