product Details

WIRD 2002 Plantation Vintage Edition

Plantation Rum is a brand owned by the well-established cognac producer, Cognac Ferrand. Maison Ferrand is centuries old and has used its extensive contacts in the spirits industry to source to source some exceptional casks of rum. The company also has privileged access to those in the warehouses of Clarendon and Long Pond in Jamaica, through its acquisition of the West India Rum Distillery (WIRD) and the shares in National Rums of Jamaica that came with it. Its ownership of the Bajan WIRD distillery has seen it increasingly involved in rum production as well as bottling in recent years. 

This is a 2002 vintage WIRD rum, and a blend of pot and column distillate. It was tropically aged for 12 years in bourbon casks before a 3 year continental finishing period in 350 litre Pierre Ferrand cask at Chateau de Barbonnet.

Bottled in 2017.
