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.

Double distilled in a column still to 70% ABV, then second distillation yields a spirit of 90% ABV. The newly distilled liquor is diluted with water to 50% ABV before storing solely in French Limousin oak barrels and set aside for aging.

After aging for 4 years in white Limousin oak, whose larger pores facilitate the exchange between the rum oxygen in the surrounding air, Barbancourt 4 year old rum possesses light delicate flavors. Fully enjoyable on the rocks or with a mixer. It lends itself to the best cocktails as well as in cooking recipes Barbancourt 3 Star is a delight amongst gourmets.

In 1862, Dupré Barbancourt, a native of the Charente region in France, put the finishing touches to a recipe for rum that still bears his name today. Using a double distillation method usually reserved for the very finest cognacs, he discovered a rum of incomparable quality that has always received the highest international distinctions. Dupré Barbancourt left no heir and when he died the company passed to his wife Nathalie Gardère who managed it with the help of her nephew, Paul Gardère. When she died, Paul then directed the company’s destiny until 1946. At this time Rhum Barbancourt’s distillery was still located on le Chemin des Dalles in Port au Prince and only produced a limited quantity of rum. The older aged rums being exclusively reserved for family and friends. Technically Rum Barbancourt is a Rhum Agricole with all and only the fresh juice of the cane to be used, contrary to 95% of the world rums using the left-overs (Molasses, stalks) of the sugar refining industry. Agricole Rum belongs to the world of cognac or Armagnac, whenever Traditional Rum (also known as Industrial) is in the grappa / pomace world. However, if agricole, it is not submitted to the other rigors of “AOC Rhum Agricole” and therefore has its own style: relaxed Haitian!
