Owners of the Bellevue distillery on Grand-Terre island in Le Moule, Guadeloupe, the Damoiseau family is the country’s leading producer of agricultural rum. Damoiseau Agricole Cane Caribbean Rhum is made from pure sugar cane juice distilled in a column still and aged in oak barrels.
Aged a minimum of 6 years in ex-bourbon barrels, Damoiseau XO Vieux Agricole Caribbean Rhum has a unique combination of power and finesse for an aged Rhum Agricole. A heavy oceanic character has given an opulent depth and the wood and sugarcane come together to release burnt orange peel, mint, cinnamon, and tobacco spices.
