Founded in 1930 by Julian Barceló in Santo Domingo, Ron Barceló has grown to become one of the top three rums in the Dominican Republic. One of the “three B’s” as they’re called: Barcelo, Brugal, and Bermudez.

The tour here doesn’t get much into the hands-on production of the rum, and instead takes visitors through a kind of rum/ron museum. It’s worth it, though, as the tasting at the end includes local, organic chocolate to pair with some of the Dominican Republic’s finest rums!
