From the producer:
Vintage collection #2
For more than 20 years, Plantation Rum Master Blender Alexandre Gabriel has explored the world of rum and its terroirs in search of traditional production methods.
For this one-time limited edition, he handpicked 22 casks from Destileria Sofa, the first distillery in Venezuela with century old expertise in rum-making.
In Plantation Rum's signature double-ageing technique, this unique expression aged 8 years in Venezuela, then shipped by sea to the south-west of France, where it matured another 4 years in French oak Ferrand Cognac casks.
Bordering the Caribbean Sea,
Venezuela has a long heritage of producing rich and refined rums, traditionally aged in oak casks.
This 2010 vintage is an elegant expression of its terroir with delicate notes of candied fruits and spices.
Alexandre Gabriel, the founder of Plantation, has been in the spirit world for years. He has searched for the best cognac and superior rums, believing that spirits are emotions, experiences to express. This has gone on to shape the way Plantation makes rum, by nurturing relationships with the best distillers in the Caribbean.
Ensuring Plantation has access to the best rum possible, Plantation now boasts a diverse rum collection from all over the world, each one as special as the last.
