El Mondero Rum
To understand the history of Rum it is essential to know its origins, which go back to where it originates "Sugar Cane".
It prospered the most, achieving maximum yields in the fertile plains of Salobreña and Motril, due to the quality of the land and better environmental conditions thanks to its tropical climate.
It is from the XVI century when its cultivation spread considerably, becoming the second most important merchandise, after precious metals.
In the fertile plains of Salobreña and Motril sugar cane was cultivated until 2006, when the “Azucarera del Guadalfeo Nuestra Sra. del Rosario”, the last sugar factory located in La Caleta, Salobreña, was closed, thus ending the industrial cultivation of sugar cane in the region, after almost twelve centuries of plantations and cultivation.
