Ron Montero Distillery

Ron Montero distillery

Established in 1963, the Ron Montero Winery lies at the heart of the Costa Tropical, an area steeped in ancient sugarcane cultivation. Founder Francisco Montero Martín envisioned creating an impeccable rum with subtle aromas and a refined taste, a legacy meticulously preserved by his successors for over fifty years.

Ron El Mondero

ron mondero3

The sugar industry is a defining feature of the Costa Tropical. Introduced by the Arabs in the Kingdom of Granada in 711, sugar cane has been one of the most representative crops of the region for centuries. Ron El Mondero is now one of the producers aiming to revive this tradition. Just 10 minutes from Salobreña, taking the highway towards Granada and the A7 exit, you’ll find Bodega Ron El Mondero in the village of Lobres.

Sourcing from the only distillery in Europe that exclusively uses 100% sugar cane in its distillation processes, Azucarera Guadalfeo, also known as Azucarera Nuestra Señora del Rosario, located in the popular La Caleta neighborhood of Salobreña, Ron El Mondero crafts its rum using both alcohol and sugar cane spirits from this distillery.

With the ability to captivate even the most discerning palates, Ron El Mondero has been awarded the Gold Medal twice at the International Rum Congress in Madrid, a testament to its quality.

Free from any additives, essences, or spices that could alter its natural flavor, Ron El Mondero presents a delicate rum with amber color and golden reflections, boasting aromas of toasted notes, vanilla, chocolate, tobacco, and sandalwood.

The aging process used is the solera and criaderas method from Jerez, which achieves a homogeneous and incomparable rum flavor. This is the same system used to produce fortified wines and champagnes. The initial aging at 54º is carried out using this procedure, but subsequently, the rum, already reduced to 38º, is transferred to other barrels previously used for fino and manzanilla sherries to further refine the nuances.

Visits are available where guests are welcomed by the winemaker, introduced to the millennia-old history of sugar cane in the Costa Tropical, guided through the rum production processes, and treated to tastings of local products such as cane honey, jams, liqueurs, and El Mondero rum.
