The Barbancourt family is of French origin, hence the spelling 'Rhum' on the label. Sugar cane grown at Domaine Barbancourt as well as other parts of Haiti is hand cut between November and June, then thrice milled, then fermented for about 72 hours with a proprietary strain of yeast developed in-house. Gold color with golden reflection. Average intensity but crystalline brillance. Including the aromatic freshness of the nose, with notes of characteristic rum and a bit of pepper in the final.
