The success story of rum began in the late 18th century when Don Juancho Nieto Meléndez explored and optimized rum production. In Germany, the rum has been distributed since 2012 under the brand name Botucal. At that time, the company lost a long-standing legal dispute against the discounter Aldi, which owns the trademark rights to the brandy Diplomat. The new designation originates from the cultivation area of the used sugarcane on a Botuka, the local term for a green hill.
