Maison Ferrand Owner and Master Distiller, Alexandre Gabriel works closely with distilleries across the Caribbean and America’s crafting rums, they are left to age in warm Caribbean cellars for the initial part of their life. During the secondary process, the rums are exported to Cognac where they undergo a series of age old Cognac making techniques. This centuries old application is known by the French as 'elevage' and the process used is unique to Plantation. Vibrant, full flavoured Caribbean rums, finished with French finesse.

This Barbados 5yo is the flagship rum in the Plantation range. American oak barrels play host to this rum where it ages for three to four years. Next a woody and nutmeg palette is drawn out in Ferrand French oak casks as the rum continues to mature for one to two years.

The result is a subtle and tropical Barbadian style rum, excellent for aperitifs or classic cocktails like the Mai Tai.

Tasting Notes

Nose: Calves leather and caramel. Hints of cinnamon and dried coconut, a little vanilla too. Dried banana develops.

Palate: Surprisingly sweet palate entry, with molasses and hints of leather to the fore, alongside orange rind and salted butter. Allspice.

Finish: Becomes very sweet on the finish. A bevy of fiery spices appear on the tail.

Please note: Vintages may vary. If you require a specific vintage please contact us in advance to check.
