NEISSON LE BIO ORGANIC Rum 52.5% 700ml
Year in year out, the organic cultivation area has been steadily growing, reaching a 10% share of the land in 2017. This is how the creation of Le Bio par Neisson was made possible. To celebrate the event, the artist Philippe Beaudelocque created a special casing. This rum was produced in 2018 from canes collected manually between March and April. They come from plots T1, T2 & T3. Visual: A crystalline and clear appearance. Nose: it conveys a vegetal note which is more refined compared to the 2017 version. This vintage is characterized by its aromatic intensity featuring predominant citrus notes, and more specifically lime, which combine with anise and sugarcane floral notes. Palate: lime appears from the first mouthful, conveying a hint of acidity. The impression of sweetness lingers on the finish, which is of high intensity. It can be enjoyed as a ti-punch with a dash of cane sugar syrup and lime zest. Ice cubes or crushed ice will complete the cocktail according to individual taste
A small distillery at the entrance of a fishing village on Martinique island. A small distillery owned by a woman, led by her son Gregory Vernant Neisson, who today is the last Master Distiller and owner in the island. A small distillery, which has become a leader in the Rhum Agricole field thanks to the Appellation d'Origine Contr?l?e (A.O.C.), which is the French equivalent of the English Protected Designation of Origin (PDO). Neisson owns forty hectares in the municipality of La Carbet, and processes only the cane from his plantations, where they seek to cultivate three non-hybrid sugar cane varieties: the malanoi, the ruban?e and the crystalline. The slow fermentation of pure cane juice lasts 72 hours, the longest in all the French Antilles, thus developing a unique aromatic range. The distillation is carried out by Gregory in the mythical Savalle column still from 1938: an artisan, meticulous, almost maniacal distillation with low alcohol content with the intention of producing a rhum of great structure, bottled in the now iconic rectangular z?pol kar? bottle , highly sought after by collectors.
