This Reserve Speciale is double-distilled in copper pot stills and aged for eight years in white oak barrels to produce one of the finest rums of its kind in the world.
Rhum Barbancourt rums are a Haitian product with well over 100 years of experience and tradition. They are distilled not from molasses but the juice of the pressed sugar cane (and thus styled "rhum agricole"), which lends a different profile to the many other rums.
Rhum Barbancourt is a superior premium dark rum distilled twice in copper pot stills. It is then barrel-aged in white oak barrels. Unlike other island rums, Barbancourt is made directly from sugar cane juice, pressed from hand-cut, locally grown cane. Aged 8 years. A full bodied premium Reserve Speciale dark rum with a velvety quality. Will enhance any rum drink.
