The rich and intense style of Jamaica and Barbados, with their notes of plum, banana and vanilla, is enhanced by meticulous blending and further maturation, in France. Blend of Barbados 1-3 year old, Jamaican Pot Still High Ester 10-15 year old, Finally blended into a wooden vat to age for 3 to 6 months in the southwest of France. The result is a profound structure spiced with notes of cinnamon and clove, whose smoky quality adds texture. 

Plantation Rum was born out of a long standing relationship between fine Cognac producer Maison Ferrand and some of the best rum distilleries in the Caribbean. Maison Ferrand has always had close relationships with the best distilleries in the Caribbean, selling them their highly prized casks, that had once contained its cognac, to mature their spirits. Throughout these exchanges, Maison Ferrand had the opportunity to discover some very old batches of rum with extraordinary richness and a diversity of aroma and flavour. Available in tiny quantities, Maison Ferrand decided to estate bottle and age these rums that would have otherwise been intended for the personal consumption of the distillery’s cellar master or used to give style to industrial rum blends.

Plantation is now a full range of seven vintage rums and three blended rums made by Ferrand's cellar master. Each rum is the perfect expression of its country of origin, it's terroir and it's distillery.
