Plantation Rum is a multi-award-winning rum born in Caribbean, developed by the Cognac producer Maison Ferrand. After purchasing and rejuvenating the latter in 1989, Alexandre Gabriel travelled in the Caribbean during the following decade seeking out the best rums of the region and forging close relationships with the distilleries. Gabriel and his team used their experience in Cognac to inform their methods of maturing rum. They employ a double aging method that harks back to the Caribbean rums brought back to France by ship in the 17th to 19th centuries. The rums all age in Bourbon barrels in the Caribbean for the first few years, and are then transported to Château de Bonbonnet in the Charentes. Here they finish aging in cooler temperatures in French oak.

Aged in Bourbon casks, then in Ferrand barrels, this old Barbadian rum owes its sophisticated aromatic complexity to the different species of wood used and their various degrees of toasting, as well as to different climates: tropical in Barbados and continental in France, where both dry and humid cellars are used.

From nose to mouth, it expresses a rich palate of chocolate and ripe banana, with fresh and delicious mango notes. Lastly, a remarkably long finish makes Plantation XO a true sipping rum.
