Warming, mellow rum that’s brimming with fruit character. It’s from master blender Alexandre Gabriel, whose Plantation project sees him creating glorious rum in the Caribbean, before finishing it off in Cognac casks in his château in Charente.
"Wonderfully smooth and mellow rum discovery from Alexandre Gabriel’s travels to Trinidad"
Jehan Sacaze Buyer of Spirits
Alexandre Gabriel’s Plantation rums have caused a stir worldwide, becoming a firm favourite for customers, journalists and people in the trade. Alexandre is the master blender of Cognac’s Maison Ferrand, and in 1989 he came across some very old vats of rum. He was so impressed he decided to do a special bottling and the Plantation range was born. This particular release was distilled in Trinidad back in 2003 using fermented molasses. The spirit was left to age in used bourbon casks in the warm, humid climate. Then, after eight years, it was shipped to France and transferred to Cognac barrels for a further four years, adding extra layers of fruity complexity. An exceptionally flavoursome sipping rum, it’s perfect with just an ice cube.
