Imperial

Made from the precious nectar of the best selection of Dominican sugarcane harvested in our plantations, Barceló Imperial is the result of the dizzying dream: the ageing of our finest rum reserves. Naturally aged for up to ten years in the best climatic conditions, Barceló Imperial is an exquisite harmony of colour, fragrance and flavour for the senses.

Imperial Old Fashioned

2 ounces of Barceló Imperial
3 drops of angostura bitters
1 lump of brown sugar
½ ounce of cold water
1 curl of orange peel

Preparation

Put the sugar lump and the three drops of angostura bitters in a low glass. Add the water and mash with a muddler until you get a reddish syrup. Add two or three ice cubes and an ounce of rum and mix.
Add two or three more ice cubes and the rest of the rum. Mix again. Twist the orange peel and add it to the cocktail to extract the essential oils from the orange. Mix for the last time and decorate with a cherry.
