When Brugal reached out to talk about a collaboration with their 1888 rum, we saw its process and immediately knew what to do. The rum is aged in two different barrels, so we designed a Grado out of the same two.
The Double Barrel Reserva limited edition is designed using a mix of Spanish oak and American oak, the same that their barrels are built from. We experimented with a few different processes of combining the woods. Unlike our GS2000e which was our first hybrid wooden headphones, this collaboration has the woods layered horizontally. Does the wood smell like rum? No. Do they make enjoying a glass while listening to music more enjoyable? Scientifically speaking, yes.
