Agricole rhum is made by distilling pure, fresh, fermented cane juice. Produced mainly in the French West Indies, Martinique and Guadeloupe, agricole rhum is a high-quality rum, well-known and appreciated for its specific aromas and flavours due to its long and established method of production.
Trois Riviéres gets its name from the three rivers; Bois d'Inde, Oman and St. Pierre, which border the original estate which was first established by Nicolas Fouquet, The Superintendent of King Louis XIV in 1660. The Plantation, in the far South of Martinique, benefits from an exceptional geographic location that gives the rhums their character and rich flavour. The sugar cane grows in clay soils that are rich in magnesium, whilst their roots bathe in sea water. This gives the rhums their high sugar content and their remarkable, refined and diverse flavour profile.
Trois Rivieres Cuvee de L'Ocean is made using sugar cane grown in the south of Martinique next to the Atlantic Ocean. The result is a maritime rum, with hints of sea spray added to the classic agricole notes of grass and sweet fruit. This works especially well in a Daiquiri.
Nose: Coastal grass, sea spray and coal-like bitterness. Sweet notes of fruit develop, with a buttery backbone and liquorice hints. Soft spice and lemon zest provide support.
Palate: Light, sweet and very green – freshly chopped sugar cane, mown grass and stacked straw. Earthy and woody notes appear, with seaside pebbles sat alongside freshly stripped twigs. Rich, warm and sweet notes of dark sugar slowly develop underneath.
Finish: A wave of sugar syrup is followed by phenolic notes, brine and hints of smoke. Green and grassy notes develop, with stony minerality and a touch of earthy spice. Spice lingers.
