No.1 Wine & Spirits (W&S) of Sweden has signed an international multi-market distribution agreement with premium Venezuelan rum Ron Roble.

From 2022, No.1 Wine & Spirits will be representing Ron Roble premium rum internationally, looking to expand across multiple markets covering North America, UK and Europe, Middle East and Asia, as well as Global Travel Retail, while working in partnership with existing distributors where appropriate. 

The multiple award-winning Ron Roble rum brand was launched in 2013 and started to export in 2017. It now has a presence in more than 14 markets worldwide. The focus on quality means that Ron Roble is produced in limited batches that are bottled only when deemed to be perfectly matured as exceptional rums. Maestro Ronero of Ron Roble, Giorgio Melis, is the Master Rum Blender with more than 50 years of experience.

Ron Roble premium rum range: Ron Roble Maestro: a brand new rum released for 2022. Aged for a minimum of 6 years in American ex-bourbon casks. Ron Roble Extra Anejo: Aged for a minimum of 8 years without replenishment of losses in American ex-Bourbon casks. Contains best reserves, aged between 8 to 12 years old. Ron Roble Ultra Anejo: A single vintage limited edition rum. Aged for 12 years under the traditional maturation method, in American ex-Bourbon casks and also Pedro Ximenez (PX) Sherry casks. Ron Roble Zafra: a 15 year old single vintage rum with a limited production of only 1,000 per edition, each certified by the Ron Roble Maestro Ronero, Giorgio Melis.

Ron Roble premium rum originates from the Yaracuy State in central Venezuela, and uses molasses with low minerality as the base for the rum production. These molasses are fermented for a short period of time before a five column distillation process is used. Only the heart of the distillation is kept, the heads and tails are discarded, producing a clear distillate, low in congeners and ready for the maturation process. This traditional maturation approach for Ron Roble provides it with its defining amber color, complexity, structure and aromas.
