product Details

Belize Rum XO Plantation Single Cask #5

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 is a Belize XO rum, from casks matured in tropical weather for 6-8 years. They were then shipped to France to age in Ferrand barrels, with this batch drawen from a single Selection des Anges cask.

The only rum distillery in Belize, Travellers Liquors was established by Omario Perdomo in 1953 as a blending and bottling operation, taking its name from its historical affiliation with serving those making the journey along the main route to Belize city. When supply became an issue, Perdomo contracted Luis Espat to build a distillery in Belopman, eventually acquiring it from him in 1989. The distillery specialises in dark rums, double distilled from a molasses wash on its three-column continuous still, and aged predominantly in charred oak barrels.
