Distilled in Haiti since 1862, Rhum Barbancourt is crafted from 100% sugar cane juice, no molasses, giving its taste most delicate flavors. Depending on the aging, 4 different rums come out of the distillery, each with its own unique trait: the 15 years old Estate Reserve, the 8 years old Réserve Spéciale 5 star, and the 4 years old 3 stars are aged in oak barrels, while White Rhum is aged under a year in a stainless tank.
From pirate life on the open sea to Caribbean island paradises, perhaps no other spirit evokes such a romantic history as Rum. Made through fermentation and distillation of molasses or the fresh-pressed juice of sugar cane, Rums range from 20% to over 70% alcohol and come in a variety of tones from clear to dark. Highest quality Rums are generally produced in pot stills and aged in wood, while less expensive Clear or “White” Rums are produced in column stills and bottled without barrel aging. Naturally, Rums form the base of tropical cocktails like Daquiris and Mojitos.
