FAQ

Is this real mamajuana?

Yes. Candela is 100% authentic Mamajuana, hand-made in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.


Why doesn’t it have any sticks inside?

Candela is a premium Mamajuana. We filter the Mamajuana sticks out during the bottling process to comply with international export regulations. Even though Candela is clear, it tastes just like “traditional” Mamajuana, if not better!).


Is this legal?

Candela is 100% legal. We produce our Mamajuana in FDA-approved facilities. Our products are TTB-approved (for sale in the USA) and comply with FDA regulations. Mamajuana used to be illegal a few decades ago. Not anymore… Now, Mamajuana’s popularity is booming and Candela is leading the charge in this new Mamajuana renaissance.


Is there any marijuana, CBD or THC in this?

Even though the names sound very familiar, THERE IS NO MARIJUANA or cannabis-derivatives in our mamajuana! Just fine rum, spices and honey.


Is this a rum?

Yes. It’s a premium, naturally-spiced rum. It’s like the spiced rum you’ve had before, except it doesn’t have any artificial flavors or colors. It’s also a bit sweeter and smoother on the palate. Mamajuana is a category of its own. It’s made with fine Dominican rum. Once you infuse the Mamajuana ingredients, and add honey, it becomes a Mamajuana. We use rum made from fresh-pressed sugarcane juice and not molasses. This is a very important distinction which we are very proud of. You will notice the quality in our taste.


What is Mamajuana?

Mamajuana is the typical drink of the Dominican Republic. Mamajuana was originally an energizing tonic. It’s a 500 year-old recipe inspired by the Shamans of the Taíno People. It became popular for its effects and is an emblem of Dominican culture and pride. If you travel to Punta Cana, you’ll probably see a lot of people drinking this at your resort!


What does it taste like?

Candela tastes like vacation. Imagine a fine Dominican rum. Now add an aromatic herbal flavor to it and the subtle sweetness of organic honey. That’s what Mamajuana tastes like. Mamajuana is like a spiced rum, but smoother and sweeter.


Where is it made?

Candela is imported from the Dominican Republic. We produce it in Santo Domingo, the capital city, as well as San Pedro de Macoris.
