DOMINICAN REPUBLIC

Atlántico was born where the Caribbean’s crystal-clear waters meet fields of lush sugarcane. Handcrafted in the Dominican Republic, Atlántico is a selection of the highest quality rums blended together and aged to perfect maturity. This labour of love creates a premium rum that truly captivates the senses.

Created for the spirited adventurer, Atlántico is your passport to paradise.

SUGAR CANE

The process for rum making begins with sugarcane. Originally brought to the Americas, and more specifically the Dominican Republic, by Christopher Columbus, sugarcane thrives in the tropical Dominican climate. Stalks can grow as high as six meters and are very rich in sugar.

CANE JUICE

When sugarcane is pressed, the result is pure cane juice, which is high in sugar content and has light, grassy characteristics. The fresh cane juice is fermented and distilled to create a clean and floral rum that is used in the blend that becomes Atlántico.

MOLASSES

When cane juice is boiled (not fermented and distilled), some of the sugar in the juice crystallizes. Once the crystals are removed, molasses is what remains. Molasses has heavy, bold characteristics and can be fermented and distilled to get a more full-bodied rum. The ditillery also create molasses based rums to use in the blend that becomes Atlántico.

MALTA

Malta refers to rum that is distilled to a lower alcohol content. As a result, it retains much more of the flavour of the actual sugarcane thus giving the skilful Master Blender more natural flavour notes to work with when developing Atlántico.

SOLERA AGING

For a proper solera aging process, barrels of rum of different ages are stacked on top of each other, the oldest on the bottom, and the youngest on the top. When it is time to bottle, only a small percentage of the bottom (the oldest) barrels’ volume will be used. The empty space created by this drawing-off will be filled with rum from the level above, and those barrels will be filled with the level above them, and onwards and upwards, while the barrels on the top level will be topped up with new rum.

The solera process is a very complex way of aging rum. Atlántico choose to use this method because it is the best way to ensure consistency. They go to great lengths to make sure that each experience you have with Atlántico is as rewarding as the one before.

BOTTLING

Only when Atlántico feel that the rums have reached their perfect level of maturity do they remove them from the barrels and bottle them by hand. The company founders oversee each bottling and inspect every bottle before it is deemed worthy to be called Atlántico.

ATLANTICO PLATINO

This handcrafted product is made from fresh Dominican cane juice. It is aged for over 1 year in American White Oak then finished in barrels that previously held Spanish Tempranillo. The unique combination results in an incredibly smooth and flavourful light rum than can easily be enjoyed neat, on the rocks, or in your favourite cocktail.
