Alegró comes from the Spanish word Alegría, which means joy and happiness. This is what Ron Alegró is all about: enjoying the moment while you are sharing a good glass of rum. Ron Alegró XO is produced in the beautiful country of The Dominican Republic. After distillation from sugarcane, the rum has matured for a period up to 8 years in American whiteoak casks (ex Bourbon). This long ageing process in the tropical climate of The Dominican Republic has resulted in a beautiful and soft rum, with pleasant hints of vanilla, charred wood and tobacco. Please drink this rum how you like it best - either straight or in your favourite mix.
