This Tres Hombres Rum Ed. 67 is a Spanish rum that has followed a triple maturation process of column distillation. Originally from the Dominican Republic, this rum was blended and aged by Bodegas Oliver.
Origin and distillation
After the triple maturation process and sufficient time, Porto Tawny, Calvados and Cognac barrels perfected this Caribbean distillate during the journey home. Nearly 5,000 miles of sailing across the North Atlantic has added enough adventure to give this rum a signature “Tres Hombres” worthy finish upon arrival in Amsterdam. Because the ship is constantly moving, the Porto Tawny, Calvados and Cognac barrels have intensified the flavor of the rum for an unforgettable aftertaste.
But first is this Tres Hombres Rum Ed. 67, aged for 18 years according to the Solera system. The Solera system originally originated in Spain and is used for various drinks. Of these, Sherry is the most obvious, and balsamic vinegar perhaps the most surprising. In Spanish, “solera” literally means “on the ground.” The barrels are organized into rows from the ground up, with the bottom layer of barrels containing the oldest matured liquid. The next row of vessels is called the first criaderas (or “nurseries”) and contains the intermediate age average and the second criaderas, the highest level in a three-row arrangement, contains the youngest average age fluid. During the year, part of the lower barrels is tapped for bottling. This row is then replenished from the row on top of it, and so on. Finally, the top row is refilled with new product.
What is Spanish Style Rum?
Traditional Spanish Rum, also called “ron”, is mainly produced in Cuba, but also on other Spanish islands such as the Dominican Republic.
Produced from a short fermentation of molasses, this rum is often light and syrupy, which makes it sweeter than an English rum, for example.
This rum also combines very well with our Tres Hombres chocolate!

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.
