We Believe In Doing Things Better.

Candela’s Purpose is to be a Source of Progress & Opportunity

We care about the environment and we care about our people.

Our brand and products are deeply rooted within our community and Dominican culture. Every bottle of Candela is made by Dominican hands; which are gifted with safe and dignified work opportunities that would otherwise not be available.

How we make a difference:

  • Our ingredients are 100% locally sourced (we even sweeten our rum with Dominican honey).

  • Candela uses all-natural ingredients, no artificial colors or flavors.

  • We ethically source our ingredients from local suppliers, paying fair prices and fair trading terms.

  • Candela's purpose is to be a source of progress for the Dominican People. We only employ locals that live walking/biking distance from our facility.

  • Candela is committed to creating progress in our community and hosts a series of local initiatives, such as the Candela Beach Cleanup and others.

Our commitment:

As we grow as a brand, we promise to share our success with the people that were part of our journey.

This is why we created the UNOxUNA Program, which pledges a $1 donation per every case sold, once we sell 10,000 cases, 100,000 cases and then 1,000,000 cases. These donations will go towards initiatives that invest in opportunities for Dominican children, as well as environmental programs.
