Rum barrels from Martinique
Oak rum barrels, freshly emptied from the island of Martinique are among the most sought-after barrels of all!
Rum barrels from Martinique let a rum of the extra class age in itself. Usually over several years without the addition of flavors and sugar, the alcohol is distilled from the pure sugar cane juice.
You can literally taste the terroir from the freshly pressed sugar cane juice after distillation in the white rum or as it would be written correctly in the Antilles in the Rhum. Unadulterated tastes especially the Rhum from the barrels of J.M. Rhum – after grasses, tropical fruits and walnuts.
The Rhum from the Antilles is an experience for flavor freaks, they do not taste simply sweet and are not subject to the mainstream that takes rum mainly as an accessory for mixing.
Rhum from Martinique is a soloist, which alone in the glass has its big stage and enraptures every aroma lover.
The rum is the result of the characteristics of the climate in the Antilles and the fertile soils that allow the sugar cane to grow so.
The 200-liter rum barrels of J.M. Rhum from American oak, we distinguish between barrels from the first occupancy of the Virgin Oak barrels and rum barrels from the second occupancy, in these barrels first matured bourbon whiskey in Kentucky before these barrels started the journey to their further use on the islands of the winds – the Lesser Antilles and were occupied for several years with Rhum.
