Bonne Mère 2014 Transcontinental Rum Line

Bonne Mère is a lesser-known rum distillery located in Sainte-Rose on the Basse-Terre island of the Guadeloupe archipelago. Although it operated as a sugar factory from the mid-19th century until 1973, it is nowadays a very modern distillery mostly producing industrial alcohol, but short runs of rum are still distilled as well.

This was distilled in 2014 from molasses and bottled in 2017 by La Maison du Whisky for their Transcontinental Rum Line series. Aged in the tropics for 3 years, then aged for in continental weather for 1 year, which allows for a slower maturation than in tropical climates.

La Maison du Whisky, aka LMDW, was founded in 1956 by Georges Benitah and is now one of the largest whisky and rum importers and distributors in France, and known the world over. They opened their first shop in Paris at the legendary 20 Rue d'Anjou in 1968, importing their first Scotch malt whiskies in the 1970s. They are known for their expertise in not only Scotch, but Japanese whisky and rum too, and their collaborative bottlings, as well as their own independent labels like this one, are highly prized.
