Neisson XO Cuveé du 3ème Millenaire
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 physian 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.
First released in 1999 to mark the new millennium, the XO Cuveé du 3ème Millenaire has become an annual release, at the top end of the Neisson portfolio. Only two thousand bottles are released annually and are produced from 10 hand picked casks aged six or more years. These casks are blended and re-racked for a further ageing of six or more years before the final Cuveé is assembled.
