“Inspired by the 1980 Mariel Boatlift, La Marielita brand is an homage to the exodus that delivered me to freedom, and a tribute to a journey that began more than forty years ago.”

Our History

Founder Janet Diaz-Bonilla continues what her grandfather began, by building on a solid foundation of inherent hard work and a penchant for supreme quality.

Our Rum

La Marielita brand is a unique and exquisite seed cultivated to flourish, thrive, and succeed. Yesterday’s “gusana” is today’s butterfly.

Our Process

A delicately crafted spirit, where the richness of our founder’s homeland and the strength, and confidence of its people, will be savored with every sip.

Ecologically Savvy Marielita

Respecting the environment is essential to our brand and we source ecological products wherever possible.
