This Plantation XO Barbados 20th Anniversary is a superb-looking decanter bottle and produced to honour Alexandre Gabriel’s 20th anniversary as Master Blender. Maison Ferrand created this Plantation XO 20th Anniversary using a blend of quintessential extra-old rums from Barbados. First aged in bourbon casks in Barbados for many years, this rum is then sailed across the ocean in barrels to the southwest of France to be further matured in small Ferrand French oak casks. This centuries-old “double ageing“ process imparts incredible smoothness and complexity.
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.
