Saint James Cuvée Excellence 70cl 42°
Saint James Cuvée Excellence rum is a great rum of authentic Martinican tradition, a tribute to the passion and quality of Saint-James rums regularly rewarded worldwide.
The cuvée Excellence was created to celebrate the excellence of the expertise of the men of the distillery Saint James, who perpetuate the tradition and respect for more than 20 years AOC Martinique.
It is a blend of carefully selected old rums, revealing aromas and finely wooded flavours, with hints of spices. Its degree, 42 °, is lower than that of traditional old Saint James rums, which underlines its roundness in the mouth.
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.
