Tres Hombres

#26 D.R. Premium XVII 2018

Premium rum from the Dominican Republic which was blended and aged by Oliver & Oliver.

Country of origin DOMINICAN REPUBLIC

#26 D.R. Premium XVII 2018: “Every year in Boca Chica we stand before the same problem: How to improve this great Caribbean rum? This time it embarked on a smooth voyage to Europe in selected Madeira barrels, rocking about for months at sea. Emission free travelling with great spirits: this is Tres Hombres Rum!”

This sublime blend of old rums has aged in American oak barrels for many years in the Solera system of Oliver & Oliver in the Dominican Republic. The voyage of 4 months in Madeira barrels gave this premium rum a flavor of light but honest sweetness and a reddish tone to the dark brown color. The nose is clear and especially soft. On the tongue this rum provides a nicely balanced sweetness with tropical dark fruit like cacao and coffee. Also nuts and banana can be recognized, while more fruity notes emerge in the aftertaste. Really a taste adventure!

About the producer

Tres Hombres

Welcome on board with Tres Hombres. This is a story about three friends, Arjen, Andreas and Jorne. In 2007 they began a shipping company. While sailing on the Dutch barque, they saw the beauty and power of great sailing ships that use only the wind as a means of propulsion, so they decided to create the world’s first modern “Emission Free” shipping company, based in the Netherlands.

The company has grown into what is now known simply as “Fairtransport”. Tres Hombres has been sailing emission free since December of 2009. She maintains a sustainable shipping route for general cargo between Europe, the Islands in the Atlantic, the Caribbean and America. In addition to her capacity for 35 tons of cargo she can accommodate a crew of seven professional sailors and eight trainees.

Fairtransport: The concept
Ships sailing under Fairtransport flag are transporting exotic products which are organic or crafted traditionally. Tres Hombres transports products such as olive oil, coffee, wine and of course rum. Their primary goal is to raise awareness about the huge amounts of pollution created by the modern shipping industry and to affect positive change in the way goods are shipped around the world. Tres Hombres makes foreign products available in the only sustainable way: by the power of the wind. Their vision is to have a world where all ocean transport happens under sail. Tres Hombres’ point is that consumers are responsible for what they buy or transport. Therefore, they offer a sustainable choice.
