This Tres Hombres Rum Ed. 61 is a “ron agricola” made from pure and organic sugar cane, mixed with 5% local honey.
Origin and distillation
The distillation was carried out with care by the Aldea distillery on the island of La Palma, which is part of the Canary Islands. The sugar cane at the origin of this rum is produced in an organic way on Aldea's own fields. This means without fertilizers or pesticides that can harm the environment or our health. 5% of delicious local Spanish honey has been added to this special rum to give it an extra sweet taste.
After maturing for 6 months on the island, this rum was picked up by the sailing freighter Tres Hombres in 2022. The rum made its journey by sea in Armagnac and Cognac barrels. Then, another 6 months later, the ship arrived back in Amsterdam and this fantastic rum had time to get a characteristic “Tres Hombres” worthy finish. Because the ship is constantly moving, the Armagnac and Cognac have barrels the flavor of the rum intensified for an unforgettable aftertaste.
What does “ron agricola” mean?
“Ron agricola”, or “agricultural rum”, is a production method originally from the French Antilles. The rum is obtained from pure sugar cane juice.
Although most rums are made from molasses, a syrup-like byproduct of sugar production, this method often produces a more complex, fruity flavor.
This rum also combines very well with our Tres Hombres chocolate!

The drawings on the labels of our 2023 editions were made by a Tres Hombres crew member.
Last but not least, this rum is made with the help of the Tres Hombres Team at the Distillery Amsterdam bottled.
Each bottle of rum is sealed with a natural cork and finished with colored beeswax. This makes the origin of the rum easy to recognize by the color of the bottle. To achieve this result, the wax is mixed with color pigments. These are milled from natural raw materials in a traditional windmill in Zaandam.
