Maestro Ronero (Master Blender)
JASSIL VILLANUEVA QUINTANA & GUSTAVO ORTEGA ZELLER
“Growing up, I remember trips to the Brugal Warehouses with my father. Some people said back then that it was my destiny to work there – but to begin with, my business studies came first. Then, following a series of internships at Brugal, my love, passion and interest deepened, which eventually led to the role I’m so proud to play today.
I’m excited to be the first female Maestra Ronera at Brugal, helping to communicate the passion of the brand to peoples and cultures around the world. It’s a life that I can’t help but enjoy.”
GUSTAVO ORTEGA ZELLER
“My earliest memories of Brugal go back to my childhood, when I visited the warehouses and bottling facilities during my holidays. As a boy, I never imagined that, just 25 years later, I would be overseeing production myself. But in 2008, I was invited to join the family business and, following my first experience in the tasting room, I knew it was the life for me.
Now, as a Maestro Ronero, I know how much wisdom, passion and hard work has gone into preserving and continuing the proud legacy of Brugal, from one generation to the next. I feel blessed to be part of it.”
