WHAT IS MAMAJUANA?
Mamajuana is the typical drink of the Dominican Republic.
Dominican Mamajuana (or "mama juana") was originally concocted as an energizing tonic. It's a 500 year-old recipe inspired by the Shamans of the Taíno People. Versions of the drink have been passed down for generations as family recipes. It's an emblem of the island's rich history, culture and pride.
If you travel to Punta Cana, you’ll probably see a lot of people enjoying a mamajuana drink at your resort!
ALL NATURAL INGREDIENTS
We believe in natural ingredients and transparent sourcing. Our recipe is made in small batches, ensuring the highest quality and control.
• All natural ingredients. No artificial colors, flavors or additives.
• Distilled from fresh-pressed sugar cane, separating us from other Dominican rum brands that use molasses.
• Aged in Bourbon casks, our recipe is aged in the warm Caribbean climate before it's bottled.
• Handmade in the Dominican Republic, with an authentic traditional recipe.
When we say we're all natural, we mean it. Candela is as "farm to bottle" as it gets!
