Saint James Cuvée 1765 70cl 42°
This Saint James rum vintage 1765 comes from one of the oldest distillery of the Martinique Island. It was indeed created 250 years ago. This special vintage is a tribute to the creation of the brand.
The Saint James 1765 is a blend of rums selected and matured in little barrels during minimum 6 years. It is an old rum. The distillation method used for its production is the one with a column still.
Displayed in an elegant square bottle, this vintage benefits from the french certification AOC ("Appellation d'origine controlée" in french or "name of controlled origin").
The distillery of Saint James was born in 1765, at the foot of the peeled mountain, on the island of Martinique (St Marie). It is the most important producer of agricultural rum of the island, but also the most famous , even owning a rum museum.
Located on the heights of St Pierre in the 18th century, it was transferred to Sainte Marie following the eruption of the volcano of the peeled mountain, which charred the entire sugar cane fields, except for a part: those of the St James plantation.
Still active today, it would produce around 3 million liters of rum a year, making this distillery the largest producer of agricultural rum on the island.
