Tres Hombres Rum Ed. 62

La Palma Fuerte 10 yrs - 44% vol. 70cl

Op voorraad

This Tres Hombres Rum Ed. 62 is a “ron agricola” made from local “guarapo” (sugar cane juice) by Distillery Aldea in La Palma, Canary Islands. The rum then matured for 10 years.   

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 on Aldea's own fields. 

This brown rum was picked up in 2022 by the sailing freighter Tres Hombres after 10 years of maturation. The rum made its journey by sea in Sherry Oloroso, Moscatel and Porto Tawny casks. 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. With the ship constantly moving, the Sherry Oloroso, Moscatel and Porto Tawny barrels have intensified the flavor of the rum for an unforgettable finish.

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. 

Tasting notes

This rum also combines very well with our Tres Hombres chocolate!

Are you a real rum lover? Would you rather drink an even fuller and more powerful rum? You are probably looking for us Captain's Choice Rums!

Design 

The drawings on the labels of our 2023 editions were made by a Tres Hombres crew member.

Bottling

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.

The story

 

The life of the brigantine Tres Hombres began in 1943. At the time still without masts and in a wreck-like condition, she was discovered in 2007 by three friends in Delft, the Netherlands. With an incredible amount of diligence and dedication from many volunteers, she was brought back to life. Within just over 2 years we managed to completely restore the ship and convert it into a sailing ship that now crosses the Atlantic Ocean every year, sails the Northern European seas and covers these long transport distances exclusively with the power of the wind. 

Route

From Amsterdam to La Palma and back via the Caribbean and the Azores

Map route Tres Hombres

This Tres Hombres Rum Ed. 62 was picked up in La Palma during the winter trip. After the refit is completed in November, the crew will board a ship in Den Helder in tip-top condition. Trainees, and sometimes crew, change occasionally during the various stops made to load cargo or stock up on food supplies.

Loading/Discharging port:

  • Douarnenez, France 
  • Baiona, Spain
  • Santa Cruz de la Palma, La Palma
  • Fort-de-France, Martinique
  • Marie-Galante, Guadeloupe
  • Bridgetown, Barbados
  • Boca Chica, Dominican Republic
  • Horta, Azores

 

Previously used barrels are loaded in Douarnenez and Baiona and later filled with rum from La Palma and the Caribbean islands. These barrels provide an extra special taste that makes the Tres Hombres Rum unique. This Tres Hombres Rum Ed. 62 is matured at sea in Sherry Oloroso, Moscatel and Porto Tawny casks. 

In Santa Cruz de la Palma, Fort-de-France, Marie-Galante, Bridgetown and Boca Chica the barrels are filled with different types of rum. Other products are also loaded on some islands, such as hot sauce in Barbados and cocoa beans in the Dominican Republic.

The stopover in Horta on the Azores is actually only to stock up on food supplies, but occasionally tea and hand-fished tuna are also loaded there.
