Maybe should be at the top?

The rums of the Dominican Republic are famous around the globe, and it’s easy to understand why. Although we’re a little late for International Rum Day, which was on the 16th of August, here in the Dominican Republic we celebrate rum day every day! You’ve probably already seen, heard or even tasted one of the three B’s: Brugal, Barcelo, and Bermudez. But what makes them so special? Unlike most other rums, Dominican rums are much ‘smoother,’ due to the original and natural process of distillation and aging, a process that also produces their unique flavor.
