Brugal, the ultra-premium rum brand with a lineage spanning five generations and over 135 years, introduces a new chapter in rum mastery with the launch of Colección Visionaria, a meticulously crafted limited-edition sipping rum collection. Leveraging their pioneering spirit and expertise, Brugal introduces a visionary exploration of their homeland’s treasures.
Colección Visionaria marks a significant milestone for Brugal, with the first edition, Cacao, unveiling a nostalgic ode to the upbringing and heritage of fifth-generation Maestra Ronera, Jassil Villanueva Quintana. The innovative Aromatic Cask Toasting technique, the first of its kind globally, is the hallmark of this collection, further enhancing the brand’s reputation for pushing the boundaries of rum craftsmanship.
Rooted in the Dominican Republic, Brugal has always been synonymous with authenticity. The inaugural edition of Colección Visionaria continues this legacy by sourcing the finest natural ingredients from their cherished homeland. The aromatic richness of Dominican cacao beans is celebrated in this expression, infusing the toasted casks with nuanced nutty, velvety, and fruity notes.
Limited to just four globally distributed batches, each priced at $100 per bottle, Colección Visionaria presents a unique opportunity for aficionados to immerse themselves in Brugal’s artistry and legacy. With each bottle adorned in a signature navy blue netting, this exquisite release encapsulates Brugal’s dedication to innovation, authenticity, and superior craftsmanship.
Jassil Villanueva Quintana, the visionary behind this collection, recalls her childhood memories of cacao fields surrounding her family home. These recollections inspire the captivating aroma and taste profile of Edición 01, Cacao. On the nose, an enticing fusion of hot chocolate, toasted oak, spices, and citrus welcomes, while the palate reveals hints of vanilla, caramel, dark chocolate, and toasted nuts, culminating in a lingering toasted oak finish.
Brugal’s proprietary cask toasting technique adds layers of complexity to the liquid, without direct contact between cacao beans and the rum, resulting in an elegant, well-rounded sipping experience, free from added sugars or additives. Colección Visionaria Edición 01, Cacao is best savored slowly, neat, or over ice.
This collector’s dream is more than just a bottle; it encapsulates Brugal’s legacy, passion, and innovation. Handcrafted, signed, and sealed by Jassil Villanueva Quintana herself, each bottle is a testament to Brugal’s commitment to the art of rum-making, making it a treasured addition to any connoisseur’s collection.
