product Details

Domaine de Courcelles 1972 Rhum Vieux

The Courcelles distillery closed in 1964, with its alembic pot still moved to the Distillerie Sainte Marthe, which in turn was closed in 1974. The barrels were then long-forgotten until being discovered in 1998 and moved to the Poisson distillery in Marie-Galante. They have since been bottled by a select few companies, and these releases are increasingly sought after.

This was bottled by Kitrad, the parent company of Distillerie Poisson, and the cap bears the name of their flagship Pere Labat brand.
