product Details

Bielle 2001 Single Cask #2 / LMDW

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 collaboration with Luca Gargano of Velier.

A Small batch, single vintage rum, distilled at Bielle on Marie Galante in Guadeloupe. This is an agricole rum, which is distilled using only freshly squeezed sugar cane juice, as opposed to molasses.

Distilled in 2001 and matured untill July 2015, this was selected by La Maison du Whisky, and is bottled from single bourbon cask #2.

One of 229 bottles.
