This rare rhum agricole vieux from Distillerie Poisson was aged in the tropical climate of Marie-Galante for eight years in 200L oak barrels. Evaporation loss reached 40% of the initial volume put into the casks – this means after eight years, 80 liters of rhum from each cask were lost to the angel' s share.
Rhum Père Labat is distilled on the island of Marie-Galante, part of Guadeloupe. The distillery, aging facilities, and the estate ' s sugarcane fields sit on 1300+ acres. Producing rum since the early 1900s, Père Labat utilizes estate and locally grown sugarcane varieties native to the island. As rhum agricole, these spirits are produced from fresh-pressed sugarcane juice rather than molasses. The distillery is the oldest on the island of Marie-Galante and houses one of of the oldest stills in the Caribbean.
