Neisson 2005 Cask Strength / Velier 70th Anniversary
Jean and Adrien Neisson acquired their plantation in Le Carbet in 1922, building the distillery nine years later. It remains part of the family to this day, saved by Jean’s daughter Claudine, who quit her job as a hospital physician to run it after his death. Her son Gregory is now its master distiller. He produces its esteemed agricole rum on the distillery’s single-column Savalle still, constructed back in 1938.
This 2005 vintage Martinique Rhum Agricole from Distillerie Neisson, distilled on Neisson's signature Savalle still (a pure copper Creole column), was bottled to commemorate the 70th anniversary of Velier
