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.

Colour: brown with mahogany reflections.

Nose: roasted notes (coffee, mocha), woody base (undergrowth) supported by sweet spices (cinnamon).

Palate: full and fat, surprising by its roundness accentuated by its degree lower than the usual old rums of Saint James.
