A First Visit to Ron Montero

By Ingridd @cosytraveler

When you hear the word "rum", you probably think of a Caribbean island where it is produced. But guess what: the only rum distillery that is open to the public on the European contintent happens to be located in the south of Spain, not far from Motril to be exact! Moreover, Ron Montero organises free tours (tasting included) every Tuesday to Saturday, in Spanish at 12 pm and in English at 1 pm.

As you can imagine, last Saturday Lars and I paid a visit to the distillery. Unfortunately, we arrived 15 minutes too late and missed the free tour. Luckily, we did have a chance to taste some rum. Ron Montero produces 4 kinds of them: 2 are suitable for mixes and cocktails, the other two are better to be consumed straight.

In between the tastings I had the opportunity to take some pictures.

Of course, we will be going back one day, because Lars and I really want to know more about the production process. Maybe with or without a friend? Anyway, as soon as we go back I will publish new pictures. In the meantime, we are enjoying a bottle of 5-year-old rum at home.

Have a look at their official website. All the practical information is there.

On Friday I will be back with a first look at the Costa Tropical.
