Yesterday, at an intimate Covent Garden venue, Maxxium celebrated the new and exciting packaging for Brugal Añejo.  The bottle, covered with Brugal’s hallmark netting (for better grip) has been refreshed to give a much more appealing look, both for the on and off trade. There was an in-depth tasting, analysing the flavour of both Brugal Añejo and Brugal Especial Extra Dry (launched in 2013), with the presentation focussed on the superior flavour profile of the rums. Guests were also lucky enough to try both Brugal 1888, aged in a sherry cask, and the exclusive Papa Andrés (pictured below) which retails at around £1000 a bottle.
