Saint James Non-Millesime early 1900s
Amongst rum enthusiasts there are few bottles so hallowed these very early 20th century bottlings of Sain James
This bottle bears no vintage, but was distilled at Plantation des Saint James prior to the advent of pasteurisation and stainless steel fermentation vessels, when the juice had to be gently heated to 40 degrees C prior to fermentation in open wooden containers.
With the eruption of Mount Pelee in 1902 destroying the entirety of stock stored on site, it is only by luck that any exists today, unearthed in cellars in Amsterdam, Paris and London.
The 1885 vintage is one of the most sought after rum ever produced, famed for both its rarity and flavour. We expect this to be no different.
