Amargo Panacea, Tonico Especial
The origin of the Ron Bermúdez distillery dates back to 1852, when Don Erasmo Bermúdez created the formula for Amargo Panacea. This particular style of molasses-based rum was intended to be served as an apéritif. The 40 ABV Amargo Panacea was an overwhelming success and established the producer as a leader in the Dominican rum category.
This inaugural product is no longer produced. But to commemorate its creation, the company issued Bermudez 1852 Anniversario 144 in the 1990s, using a similar spicy sweet character profile.
This bottle appeared in the September 1960 EUVS Catalogue and was therefore acquired by the museum between 1958 and 1960.
