History[edit]

The origin of Bermúdez goes back to 1852, eight years after the declaration of independence and foundation of the Dominican Republic, when Don Erasmo Bermúdez created the formula of the Bitter Panacea, a rum to be taken as appetizing that soon became famous.

Until 1927 the entity was ruled by Don Armando Bermúdez, who turned it into an industry of national projection under the name of "Unrivaled Liquors Manufacture". Later, when it turned into a stock company under the present name of J. Armando Bermúdez & Co., C. por A. reached its character of national institution under the ruling of Domingo O. Bermúdez.

The fourth generation of managers arrived in 1967, presently represented by Don Carlos Alberto Bermúdez Pippa, who runs the company under the same industrial, commercial and of service principles left by their founders.
