With Xaymaca Special Dry, Plantation revives the quintessential Jamaican-style, 100% pot still rums of the 19th century with an expression of intense flavors that reveal the traditional, legendary « Rum Funk » : aromas and flavours of black banana and flambéed pineapple, locally called "Hogo," an Anglicisation of the French term  "Haut Goût" (high taste).

Xaymaca evokes the name given to the island by its first inhabitants, the Arawaks. This nectar is a return to the origins of Jamaican rum, in all its complexity and intensity. With its latest investment in the Caribbean, Plantation now owns a third of the mythical "Long Pond" and "Clarendon" Jamaican distilleries. Thanks to these exceptional production tools, Alexandre Gabriel made his dream of blending a 100% pot still Jamaican rum a reality.

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.
