Simón Bolívar, also known as "The Liberator", was a Venezuelan hero who took a leading role in the transition to independence from Spain for several South- and Central American countries, including Venezuela. Furthermore, the Bolivar is the national currency of Venezuela. 

Bolivar is produced in the beautiful country of Venezuela.
After distillation from sugarcane, the rum matured in American white oak casks (ex Bourbon) in Venezuela, after we have added a touch of Vanilla- and Cocoa Distillate.

This ageing process in the tropical climate of Venezuela has resulted in a beautiful and soft rums, with pleasant hints of vanilla, cocoa,

charred wood and tobacco.

Please drink our rums how you like it best - either straight or

in your favourite mix.

Rum is part of the heart and soul of the Dominican Republic

Rum is part of the heart and soul of the Dominican Republic


Venezuela is a country on the northern coast of South America and is officially known as República Bolivariana de Venezuela. The country shares its borders with Colombia, Brazil and Guyana.  

Sugarcane cultivation and sugar production in Venezuela started centuries ago. Not long thereafter, rum production started in the country. Rum is playing a vital role in the economy of Venezuela since a very long time. Until the 1960s it even was the number one export product.

Up until today, rums from Venezuela are enjoyed all over the world. The country is especially famous for its premium aged rums with a smooth and balanced character, which are a result of the long ageing processes in the tropical South American climate.



In general, rum can be divided into three different styles:

- French Style Rum (from islands like Martinique and Guadeloupe)

- British Style Rum (from islands like Jamaica and Barbados)

- Latin Style Rum (from countries like Venezuela and The Dominican Republic)

Latin Style Rums are produced in the Spanish speaking rum countries, like Cuba, The Dominican Republic, Venezuela, Panama, Guatemala and Nicaragua.

Bolivar is a very typical Latin Style Rum, which can described as a gentle and smooth,

with pleasant hints of vanilla, charred oak and tobacco. 


The Latin Style Rum category is the largest category globally. Every day, millions of people worldwide are enjoying Latin Style Rums straight, or in their favourite cocktails, like the

famous Daiquiri or Mojito. 



Countries like Cuba, Nicaragua, Venezuela and The Dominican Republic

are not only amongst the best rum producing countries, but they also produce the best cigars in the world. 

For many people, Cuba has the reputation to be the original premium cigar maker, but tobacco for cigars was first cultivated in the Dominican Republic, where cigar production started centuries ago. And due to the embargo on Cuban products in the United States after the communist revolution in 1959, many of the best cigar makers fled Cuba to other Spanish speaking countries in the region.


Premium Rums go very well with a good cigar. Especially Rums like Bolivar, which have spent many years in wooden casks in the tropical climate of the Caribbean. The gentle hints of vanilla and chocolate in the rum, combined with the smoky tobacco flavors of a premium cigar, are a guarantee for an enjoyable moment
