The origin of Barceló rum dates back to 1929, when Julián Barceló arrived in the Dominican Republic with the purpose of producing rum that would then go down in history as the best in the world. Just a year later, in 1930, he founded the company Barceló & Co. At that time the young Spaniard was only 26 years old, but with many dreams, and in a short time he started the production and marketing of his first rums throughout the country.
After years of experimentation, that the company was able to position itself on the local market. This success was due to the formal launch of Barceló Blanco and Dorado, products that were highly appreciated by consumers of the time.

The Ron Barceló Añejo was included in the brand’s product portfolio, characterized by a distinctive amber bottle, which over time established itself as the most exported Dominican rum.

1980s
The Ron Barceló, which was already at the top of the list of favourite national rums, began producing Ron Barceló Imperial, now the flagship Premium Rum among all Dominican rums, a rum that since its launch established itself as the leader in its segment until becoming today the Dominican rum most awarded by international organizations.
1990s
Then came the internationalization of the brand, with the start of exportation to countries such as Spain in 1994, thanks to which Ron Barceló currently ranks 3rd among Spirits in Spain.
2001
A group of Spanish entrepreneurs formed a strategic alliance with Barceló & Co. to market the brand all over the world, with the exception of the Dominican Republic. In 2002, the Barceló & Co. company gave up its international activities, giving way to the group of Dominican-Spanish entrepreneurs, represented, for the Dominican part, by the Barceló Díaz and García families, thus giving birth to a new company, initially called Añejos Barceló – now Ron Barceló SRL.
