product Details

La Favorite 1998 Chantal Comte L'Arbre du Voyageur

Chantal Comte is a French vineyard owner who lives in the West Indies. Under the encouragement of Andre Depaz, owner of the Montagne Pelee plantation in Martinique, she set out to become the rum equivalent of the established Master Blender profession in whisky.

This rum is a rhum vieux agricole, distilled in 1998 at La Favorite.

La Favorite is a small family-run distillery, the last in the Port-de-France area. The plantation was initially known as La Jambette, and was renamed in 1851 by new owner, Charles Henry. The distillery hit financial hardship in the latter part of the 19th century and was eventually so badly damaged by a hurricane that it was shut down for twenty years. It was re-opened by Henri Dormoy in 1905, and his family still run it today. The distillery produces between 600,000 and 1m litres of spirit each year. Very much a boutique operation, its equipment is steam-powered, and the bottles are all labelled and wax sealed by hand.
