Bielle Rhum, Guadeloupe Marie Galante, 2008

Guadeloupe

Notes:

Bielle's Rhum Vieux is made in the ancestral method, which goes back to a time when 3-mast ships crossed the Atlantic. It's unique, not just in the method of production, but also in its passage to Europe, giving you the opportunity to taste a traditional rhum agricole exactly the same as they were 200 years ago.


It comes from the beautiful Caribbean island of Marie Galante, an island named by Christopher Columbus on his 2nd Voyage after his flagship. Made by the Bielle distillery, established at the end of 19th Century, and the only rum distillery in the Caribbean to comply with ecologically friendly regulations. 


Taking an arduous journey to Europe, this rhum followed traditions first encountered many years ago. The first leg was by ox-cart to the capital of Marie Galante, Saint Louis, then onto trimaran-shaped bamboo rafts which were hoisted aboard a Dutch Brigantine Schooner. After 120  days and nights of perilous swell and motions of the old sailing ship in the north Atlantic, the bourbon barrels with the now mature rhum inside, arrived at the safe haven of the port of Le Havre. Finally the barrels were unloaded and continued to the town of Cognac to be bottled in a beautiful historic flask and wooden box.


Already characterised by exotic, menthol and slightly anise notes, at the bottom of the cargo holds this rhum aged and refined gaining toasted and delicate vanilla flavours from the oak barrels.
