Connecting the island's sunlight and sugar cane softness, result of a long fermentation, Coeur de Rhum is the work of traditionnal refined techniques over several generations.
The white rum from this distillery is considered like the sweetest of Martinique thanks to a particular technique consist of a slow stirring method which respect the natural balance and the softness of distillate.
However, its production is limited to 500,000 liters per year of rum to 55%, although this does not prevent very long aging in oak barrels, of the order of about thirty years for the oldest.
