Sancti Spiritus 2003 Plantation 15 Year Old Single Selection des Anges Cask Finish / LMDW
Launched in 2003, Plantation Rum is a brand owned by the well-established cognac producer, Cognac Ferrand. Established in 1989, Maison Ferrand has used its extensive contacts in the spirits industry to source some exceptional casks of rum. The company also has privileged access to those in the warehouses of Clarendon and Long Pond in Jamaica, through its acquisition of the West India Rum Distillery (WIRD) and the shares in National Rums of Jamaica that came with it. Its ownership of the Bajan WIRD distillery has seen it increasingly involved in rum production as well as bottling in recent years. In June 2020 it was announced that Plantation Rum would be changing its name to support the global dialogue around racial equality, with the company accepting the hurtful connotations that the word “plantation” can evoke.
Distilled in 2003, tropically aged 13 years in bourbon cask and continentally for 1 year in 'Ferrand Selection des Anges' cask.
Also known at times as Sancti Spiritus on account of the province within which it is located, the Paraiso distillery in Cuba mostly produces bulk neutral spirit for export. As it is not part of the state controlled Cubaron SA, its rum production is actually very minimal, accounting for only a fraction of its output. This is not used in the production of Cuban brands, so is mostly found bottled by independent European labels like this.
