About Ron Cartavio
Captain Don Domingo de Cartavio, acquired the land where we now find Cartavio in the year 1675 and was responsible for giving this city its name. Moreover, it is assumed that he took his last name from the city Cartavio de Asturias, like many other Spaniards did during this time.
Afterwards, the sugar production company, “Grace Sugar Company”, decided to produce its own rum, made from the molasses that were leftovers from the sugar creating process. Destilerias Unidas, the distillery behind the brand, has history dating back to April 29, 1929, when it began its operations in Ron Cartavio’s plant, founded by “Cartavio Sugar Company”, property of W.R Grace and Co.
