Pitorro is the first and true rum of Puerto Rico. First referenced in 1797 and historically made as moonshine, this clandestine spirit is still sold underground on the island and shared by families and friends on holidays and special occasions. A traditional rum distilled from sugarcane molasses, Pitorro continues to be an integral part of Puerto Rican culture.
Our unflavored Pitorro is a blank canvas for you to truly taste the nature of sugarcane. Whether enjoyed straight, mixed into your favorite cocktail, or blended into your own custom home recipe, we invite you to the underground world of Pitorro.
Our first flavored release is a family recipe was handed down from Don Ángel. Traditional Clandestino is a rum flavored with raisins, prunes and cranberries, delivering a subtle sweetness to the palate.
Our second flavored Clandestino is a favorite Pitorro flavor...Almond! This delicious rum is made with our premier Clandestino, almond extract, brown sugar, and local honey from the University of Maryland. A real treat!!
Our third flavored released is Coconut Clandestino. This Pitorro is flavored with fresh, sweet coconut and has a light fruity aroma reminding us of Puerto Rican summers.
Our most recent flavored released is Coffee Clandestino. This spirit encapsulates the dark Caribbean coffee with notes of molasses and bold aroma.
