Ron Matusalem

Matusalem & Company was founded by brothers Benjamin and Eduardo Camp, who left Spain and settled in Santiago de Cuba in 1872 for the purpose of establishing a rum distillery.[1]:38,[6] The Camp brothers brought with them their knowledge and expertise in the solera system of blending and distillation used in making Spanish cognac and sherry.[1]:38

During the 1950s, the brand was one of the top premium rums in Cuba, competing with Bacardi and Havana Club.[1]:175
