- Company News - 2015
Double Eagle Imports Ltd, the owners of Puerto Angel Rum, today announced they have extended their distribution channel through a new agreement with United Liquors, a Massachusetts-based distributor representing the industry's leading spirits brands and a diverse wine portfolio. United Liquors is a division of Martignetti Companies, the leading wholesaler of wine and distilled spirits in New England and the 7th largest distributor in the country.
Distilled from the freshly pressed juice of organic sugar cane, Puerto Angel rum was launched in the USA market in summer of 2015 but it already generated a lot of interest among trade buyers and industry experts. In June 2015, both age expressions - Puerto Angel Blanco and Puerto Angel Amber - won Gold Medals and received “Exceptional” rating from the Beverage Testing Institute. The brand also received “5 Stars” rating and the “highest recommendation” from F. Paul Pacult’s Spirits Journal.
“United Liquors’ network will definitely provide us with the market penetration needed to reach our full sales potential in Massachusetts”, said Marina B. Wilson, the President of Double Eagle Imports Ltd. “We have considered many distribution partners and we are confident that United Liquors’ commitment to providing their customers with the industry's leading service capabilities and wide distribution footprint will help us to leverage our position in New England."
Puerto Angel rum is handcrafted from the freshly pressed and naturally fermented juice of organic sugar cane that is cultivated at the distillery-owned plantation located in Oaxaca Mountains, Mexico. Unique combination of weather patterns, sun exposure, high altitudes and rich volcanic soils of this rugged, remote area results in the terroir-driven, exotic distillate. The spirit is double distilled in small batches in traditional pot stills to ensure unique and complex flavor profile as well as exceptional smoothness.
Puerto Angel Blanco is aged for 6 months in American oak barrels, while Amber matures in wood for 3 years. Puerto Angel is one of the very few rum brands that are honored by a USDA Organic certification.
