A cargohold full of Tres Hombres Rummm…
The taste of Tres Hombres rum, which differs every year, is as exquisite and exciting as its production and shipping process. The distillation of the rum is followed by years of maturing in American oak barrels, using the Solera process and a unique addition, the touch of a Cuban master blender. The traditional distillation methods, performed by various distilleries, produce rum suitable for exciting salsa parties as well as quiet moments by a fire with a Cuban cigar. Many editions have manually placed labels, or manually sealed tops, which give them their Caribbean appearance and feel, and beautifully express the romantic lifestyle associated with Tres Hombres.
Tres Hombres Rum is a collector’s item and recognizable as such; each year a certain amount of limited edition bottles are produced and shipped.
Tres Hombres rum is rum with a story, making history.
The first time I met José and Santi was when we entered the inner harbor of Santa Cruz de La Palma in the middle of the night, where they silently waited for us at the pier. Jose welcomed us with some bottles of their best rum and this moment became a celebration of a newly established partnership, soon with everyone dancing on the cargo hatch.
This year’s edition of old Tres Hombres Rum from La Palma was blended by Santiago (‘el alchemista’), a professional rum blender from Spain whom I know since he blended our first premium rum in 2012.
This rum from the Dominican Republic was specially chosen from the large selection of old rums that Oliver&Oliver permanently have aging in their ‘Solera’. It was created by a master blender, who has the art of Cuban rum making in his blood.
Where to buy
Delicious Tres Hombres chocolate…
Chocolate; a delicacy centuries old, borne from the Caribbean basin. The raw ingredients of our chocolate are loaded onboard by hand in burlap sacks in the harbour of Boca Chica, Dominican Republic.
Dominican Cacao beans have been grown organically by local farmers; they are pretty much common place on the island… however, the trip these beans take is anything but common place.
The beans are crafted into bars in Amsterdam by ‘The Chocolate Makers’. We offer (40% cacao) milk chocolate with sea salt as well as (75% cacao) pure with pieces of the cacao bean inside. Contact us to buy Chocolate
