From the producer:
Plantation O.F.T.D. Rum is our take on that classic style of overproof rums. And not just ours: to join him on the quest to get the blend and the proof just right, Alexandre Gabriel scoured rum joints around the world to find six grizzled old salts who knew which end of a rum bottle was which.
Together they came up with this blend of Guyana, Jamaica and Barbados rums, bottled at 69 percent alcohol.
O.F.T.D. officially stands for Old Fashioned Traditional Dark but if you ask any of the seven collaborators who were in the room when this blend was born, they’ll tell you it really stands for something else that was exclaimed when the winning rum was tasted…
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.
