product Details

Providence First Drops White Rum

Distillerie de Port-au-Prince was established in 2018 as a collaboration between La Maison & Verlier and Herbert Barbancourt-Linge Jr. - Master Distiller and decedent of Labbé Barbancourt who co-founded with his brother, the famed Barbancourt distillery. Distillery Port-au-Prince resurrects and preserves the traditional style of rum produced at Barbancourt until 1992 when production shifted to column distillate. Running a steam heated Muller copper pot still with a 6 plate column attached designed to the technical specifications of Vittorio 'Gianni' Capovilla, the first spirits were drawn in November 2019.

Those first spirits are presented here as the Providence First Drops. Organic Cristaline cane sugar sourced Michel Sajous (who produces Clairin Sajous also imported and distributed by LM&V) and cane syrup are single distilled, blended and redistilled ro produce this pure single white rum of Haiti.
