product Details

French Rhum Demi John

A fantastic piece of distilling history.

Though not replete with information the liquid is filled in a glass bottle encased in wicker.  Though leather tag suspended from the handle is absent it would originally have told the bottling date. The vendor has provided evidence of when the tag was present, with suggests a bottling date of 1946.

We surmise that this is likely an Agricole Rhum from the French Caribbean.

There is no volume stated but we estimate the volume to be one gallon

Shipping will be charged at 5 bottles on this lot.
