Siboney is the name and brand of a variety of rums from the Dominican Republic produced by Bodegas Cochón-Calvo, S.A.
Originated in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic in 1920. Siboney was a rum that appears to have been introduced in the United States around the 1930s. The idea behind the rum was to bring in a Cuban rum-master named Señor Alvare to produce a Cuban style rum in the US with Cuban ingredients and knowledge. This way customers would not pay any duty on their purchase, at least this was one of the selling points.
