Meet The World`s Youngest Rum Master

Jassil Villanueva Quintana is a maestra ronera, Spanish for rum master. In the world of spirits, they play the alchemist responsible for coaxing the fermented liquid into a blended libation that is a pleasure to drink.

Yet as Quintana perfects the blends at Brugal, one of the largest international golden rum brands in the world, she can’t help but stand out. Not only as a woman in a traditionally male-dominated industry but, at just 28 years old, Quintana is the youngest rum master in the world.
