Barbados Rum 2005 Plantation 11 Year Old Extreme No.1 / LMDW 60th Anniversary
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.
Maison Ferrand often use their barrels to finished these rums. This has spent 8 years in a bourbon cask in Barbados, and a further 3 ageing in Ferrand ex-Cognac wood in France.
Bottled at cask strength in 2016 for the first of the dosage-free Plantation Extreme series. This particular bottling was exclusive to La Maison du Whisky for their 60th anniversary.
