Free Rhum Tasting - RSVP Now!
Rhum with an "h"? Yes, you are reading that correctly. Rhum is the way the French spell rum, and rum coming from French Carribean islands isn't special just because of the "h". French Caribbean agricole rhum producers have always borrowed from their French distilling cousins in the Cognac region of France. That's why you'll see these rhums labeled as VS, VSOP, and XO. Not only are these sugar cane distillers using traditional brandy labeling, they are also, by law, required to make their rhum in a very strict and quality-ensuring way, much like the rules governing the production of Cognac, Armagnac, and Calvados in France.
Agricole rhum is distilled from freshly pressed sugarcane juice, unlike rum, which is distilled from molasses, a byproduct of the sugar industry. This fresh juice imparts a much brighter, fresh, green, pungent aroma and flavor that really sets agricole rhum apart from its rum and ron siblings.
Join us and local rhum aficionado, Antoine Nixon, to taste some fine examples of this unique style of rum!
