It's the beginning of the winter season in New York, don't we all wish we could be on the beach with our laptops sipping on a Brugal Mojito in Dominican Repubilc or a Leblon Caipirinha in Brazil. You may ask, "What is the difference between both?" Both cocktails are made by using a differently produced rum...
Brugal is produced in Dominican Republic by using 100% Dominican sugarcane crops that are cut by hand and then milled to produce molasses. This rum is double distilled and aged in American oak for a minimum of 2 years up to 5 years.
Leblon, produced in Brazil from 100% sugar cane juice that is fermented for 15 hours before being transferred into the Alambique copper pot stills for single-batch distillation. The distillate is then rested up to 6 months in Vintage XO Cognac Casks from France. The various batches are then master blended, and the final batch is triple-filtered and bottled.
Now that we have gone through Rum 101, "Take a Drive" down and meet the lovely Brugal & Leblon ladies, taste, compare & enjoy!
