To find the best Puerto Rican rum, follow the stars. Every single bottle of Ron del Barrilito holds premium rum that has been crafted by hand using the same methods since 1880. It’s always been made in very small batches. Absolutely no artificial ingredients or colorings are used. It’s aged to perfection in vintage american white oak sherry barrels.

The only differentiating factor between the varieties of Ron del Barrilito is simply time. Great rum takes years to come into its own. And different aging periods yield different flavor profiles. But no matter which Ron del Barrilito you choose, know that it was made slowly, patiently, and cutting no corners. We even label each bottle by hand. Good things come to those who wait.


-1½oz Ron del Barrilito 3 Stars

- ½oz Simple Syrup

- 4 Dashes Angostura Bitters

- Orange Peel Garnish Pour all the ingredients into a mixing glass.

Stir it for 10 seconds.

Strain mix into an old fashioned glass filled with ice.

Squeeze orange peel on top of glass and place on top of the drink.
