Sofa 2010 Plantation Old 12 Year Old

Launched in 2003, Plantation Rum is a brand owned by the well-established cognac producer, Cognac Ferrand. Established in 1989, Maison Ferrand has used its extensive contacts in the spirits industry 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. In June 2020 it was announced that Plantation Rum would be changing its name to support the global dialogue around racial equality, with the company accepting the hurtful connotations that the word “plantation” can evoke.

This was distilled in 2010 at Destileria Sofa (a pseudonym for Santa Teresa) in Venezuela and aged for a total of 12 years. It was aged in the following casks and locations:

  • 8 years in 200 litre ex-Bourbon casks in the Aragua Valley, Venezuela
  • 4 years in 400 litre Ferrand casks in Javrezac, France
