In 1904, in the north of Peru, the Hacienda Agrícola de Chiclayo was founded in Chiclayo, a small land between the sea and the mountains. Here, a group of peasants joined to trade their sugar and then build it with a small distillery. In 1922, the Peruvian family of landowners Piera de Castillo, whose head was Don Rolando, bought the farm, the refinery and the sugar cane plantation of the Gutiérrez family.In 1933 Don Rolando sent his eldest son Augusto to study chemical engineering at the University of Cambridge. In the summer of 1938, a ship destined for Peru left London, transporting the precious column machinery for distillation. 1950 was an unforgettable year for the young Augusto Piera de Castillo: he gave life to the Ron Millonario. The rum was the result of hard work, but since few could afford it, it acquired the name "por los millonarios", in recognition of that exclusive club of individuals rich enough to buy the spirit and enjoy its unique charm.
