Saint James rums find their origins in Martinique. The brand possesses its own lands which allows it to meet a big part of its needs in cane, as well as a distillery sheltering the most important stock of old rums. The appellation AOC Martinique proves a superior requirement highlighting its link with the terroir as well as its craft know-how. The rhum agricole is made by fermentation and distillation of the pure juice of the sugar cane called “vesou”. It distinguishes itself from some industrial or traditional rum produced from the molasses, the residues of the sugar refinery. The brand offers the widest range of old rums in Martinique and the distillery has always crafted quality rums regularly rewarded in the various international competitions.
The dark mahogany liquid provides an aroma of vanilla, prunes, and toasted oak. On the palate the rhum reveals the sweet vanilla and prune notes found in the aroma followed by toasted almonds with a strong pop of walnuts. An intense burst of anise manifests as the rhum fades with a woody and dry finish.
