Planteray Rum – Belize Vintage 2008 Bottled 2023 70 cl. 48,3%

Rum Crafted By Maison Ferrand – France

The trip goes to Belize! The 3rd release in the Terra Verra series, for the first time under the name Planteray, is a gorgeous 15 year old rum from the tropical paradise of Belize. It was distilled in 2008 at the Travelers Distillery, and then spent a full 13 years of tropical aging in bourbon casks, after which the rum was moved to Javrezac in south-west France, to continue aging for a further 2 years in cognac casks. It is bottled at 48.3% alcohol and 8 grams of sugar per liter have been added. A bang of a rum!

Colour: Amber.
Smell: A smell almost of old bourbon with intense, spicy notes of cinnamon, vanilla pods, nutmeg, roasted almonds, cocoa and honey.
Tasting notes: Lots of power, rich and creamy with a slight hint of sweetness, which accompanies big notes of dried fruit, caramel, coconut, tobacco and banana.

Serving suggestion: Should be enjoyed neat.

Maison Ferrand, led by spirits guru Alexandre Gabriel, is the company behind some of the most essential cognacs, rums and gins in the modern spirits landscape. Under the umbrella there are, among others, Pierre Ferrand Cognac, Plantation Rum and Citadelle Gin, rum under the Kaniché brand and cognac under the name Claude Chatelier. In addition, a number of luxury wines are produced, of which their curaçao in particular has caused excitement in cocktail bars worldwide. The company is broad, but common to every drop is an unwavering dedication to quality.

Maison Ferrand was created with one mission: to preserve the gastronomic treasures of France. Alexandre has made a virtue of breathing life into old and long-forgotten traditions, and the eternally eager Frenchman is known, among other things, for dusting off and buying up old archives from bankrupt houses, in order to learn more about the production methods of the past. But at Ferrand you also understand the value of renewal, and today innovation is valued as highly as tradition. This is clearly seen in the Citadelle Gin brand. Getting permission to distill gin in Cognac required five years of bureaucratic struggle against the area’s stubborn spirits giants.

Since then, the company has spread beyond France’s borders, and today Ferrand is perhaps best known for its series of rums. Under the name Plantation, Alexandre buys rum from many different countries in the Caribbean and stores them in France in cognac casks. In the series there are rums for both the beginner and the connoisseur, for both the daiquiri and the Glencairn glass. In 2017, the company bought the Barbados distillery West Indies Rum Distillery, and now also has its own rum production from scratch.
