Trois Rivières Cannes Brûlées 70cl 43°
The Trois Rivières Cannes Brûlées rum is part of the new range of rum "Les Editions du Bar by Trois Rivières".
For this version, the rum factory was inspired by an ancient and traditional method: the burning of canes on foot. This method was used by cane cutters to remove sharp leaves and snakes before cutting.
The canes are then cut off after the fire is extinguished and transported still smoking to be crushed.
The juice is then fermented and distilled in a creole column, then reduced to 43° in spring water infused with powdered burnt cane that is then boiled and filtered. This process has been brought up to date in order to obtain a unique rum with a rustic and smoked profile. It is a mono-varietal rum, from rozeau cane, coming only from the Fig Tree plot in Rivière Salée, Martinique.
At the Trois Rivières plantation, one of the oldest in the world, two experts work together to create unique rums: Daniel Baudin, cellar master since 1995 and Christian Vergier, a renowned oenologist.

The Trois Rivières (Three Rivers) plantation was founded in 1660 by Nicolas Fouquet, Superintendent of Finances for Louis XIV, allotting himself 2000 hectares in the south of Martinique. It is only in 1785 that the rum production starts, completing the sugar production, when a powerful landlord from the north of the island, Etienne Isaïe Marraud Des Grottes, bought the plantation.
After being purchased by the B.B. Company, also owner of the La Mauny rum, the Trois Rivières production is moved to Rivière Pilote in 2004, where is located the La Mauny distillery. The precious original continuous still, that brings all of Trois Rivières characteristics, is reassembled on the new site, securing the quality of the spirit.
The Trois Rivières rum has held a “Martinique” Protected Denomination of Origin since 1996.
The Trois Rivieres rums develop a unique mineral style characterized by its hallmark full-bodied structure and aromatic richness. As the plantation faces south the canes grow easily near the shore and receive plenty of sun, imparting to the Trois Rivieres rum all of its special characteristics, as it is crafted from pure sugarcane juice.
The white rum develops a pleasant freshness and mineral edge. The good batches are left to age in oak casks for at least 3 years, to get the “Old Rum” appellation, and are characterized by a complex blend of spices and oaky flavours.
The refinement of Trois Rivieres rum resides in the very specific shape of the large column still and the pouring methods kept secret by the master distillers.
