Tasting Notes: Known since 1924 by the square bottle and distinctive label, Bally rum – from the leeward town of Le Carbet in Martinique – has enjoyed a most successful history. The distillation column has since been moved to Saint James Distillery, where Bally rum is now distilled.This classic pyramid shaped bottle was first launched in 1930 by Jacques Bally. It rapidly became a signature of the Bally distillery. This Bally old rum was aged 3 years in Limousin oak casks. It’s deep amber colour and tasting qualities are due to its prolonged aging

J. Bally Rum was one of the first distilleries in La Martinique to produce "Rum Agricole" from pure cane sugar and be granted "A.O.C" status (Appellation d’Origine Controllée). The AOC Rhum Agricole de la Martinique restricts production to the short best season for the cane to pack aromas, compels that all and only the fresh juice of the cane 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. Inspired by traditional, established production methods for cognac and other fine spirits, the founder of the company, Jacques Bally, had the brain wave as long ago as 1917 to age his rums in oak casks. This slow aging in wood gives them a lovely mahogany colour and fine incomparable aromas which time alone can bring. It is the excellence of his old rums and very early their mention of age, which helped establish the reputation of J.Bally Rums the world over. The originality of the pyramid shaped bottle is the cherry on the cake.
