product Details

Bielle Hors d'Age Rhum Vieux 50cl

Bielle is one of three distilleries on the island of Marie Galante in the Guadeloupe archipelago. It was founded at the end of the 19th century as rum production began to take over following the decline in profitability of sugar. The distillery was acquired by Paul Rameaux in 1955, and today is still run by his nephew, Dominique Thiery. Bielle produces around 320,000 litres of agricole rum on its column still every year. It also houses a bespoke Muller pot still, designed by Italian grappa maker Vittorio Capovilla for his Rhum Rhum collaboration with Luca Gargano of Velier.

This is a rhum vieux agricole, which is distilled using only freshly squeezed sugar cane juice, as opposed to molasses and aged in cask for a minimum of three years.
