Kalembu Mamajuana Rum
J & J Spirits is the manufacturer of mamajuana Kalembu, a company established in 2005, at the free zone park of Hato Nuevo in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. And now also the Kalembu Guavaberry Rum
The founders of J & J Spirits, Jack Astacio and Julio Astacio, were the ones to do what nobody had done before; blending a ready-to-drink mamajuana on an industrial level, complying with international quality standards.
Until that moment the only way mamajuana was sold was in recycled bottles but only with the sticks and leaves which are used to prepare mamajuana. So people had to cure the mamajuana ingredients first and then add the rum, honey and wine. Then had to wait until it was ready. In this inconvenient way the taste of the mamajuana was never the same, people didn’t know what was in it and it was more expensive.
The company founders had been producing Mamajuana for years already. At first selling only to the touristic market on the island such as giftshops and hotels. After having received many requests from people all over the world it was decided to take the production to an other level in order to be able to take mamajuana to the global market.
Mamajuana is a drink from the Dominican Republic that is made by adding rum, red wine, and honey to a combination of twigs, bark, leaves and herbs. The taste is a unique combination of woody and herbal flavors, it is sweet to semi-sweet and normally the color is a deep brown/red.
Kalembu is the ready-to-drink mamajuana that has revolutionized the world of mamajuana. The founders of J & J Spirits were the ones to do what nobody had done before; blending a ready-to-drink mamajuana on an industrial level, complying with international quality standards. Mamajuana Kalembu is the result of years of research, tasting and developing a way to produce a ready-to-drink mamajuana without being untrue to the original recipe and ingredients of the maceration process implied when making mamajuana.
