The recipe for Ron Aldea tradition was born in 1936. After several blending steps which are carried out in a very long and meticulous process of maturation, these barrels are selected which correspond to the criteria for this recipe. For the maturation of the rum barrels of different origin as well as of different " toasting grades" are used. These "Aguardientes" used for the maturation, go at this through a maturation time of at least 20 years and more. Finally  the rum is stored 2 years for finishing into Tempranillo wine casks from the north of Spain.

Going back to the roots ...
The story goes that in 1553, La Palma was sacked by François Le Clerc. Like Le Clerc, many other corsairs and pirates like Francis Drake attacked the island in search of its valuable treasures. Among them, the most valuable asset, its RUM.

Since 1936, Quevedo family has kept secret the good work of a centennial tradition which generation after generation, has been inherited by his Master Rum Makers. Today, four generations later, they continue that tradition that gives to their name and their rums a higher meaning.

La Palma island is the perfect setting combining nature, history, culture, tradition, craftsmanship and quality in perfect balance, and there is where their rums are born. Here preserve the essence and freshness of the freshly cut sugar cane, are tamed and mellowed by the pure oak wood, rounded by the warmth and softness of the special climate, and it is there, in La Palma, where are rocked by the endless Atlantic Ocean breeze.
