About Rhum Barbancourt Five Star Reserve Speciale 8 Year Old RumRhum (French for Rum) Barbancourt is both distilled and bottled by Societe du Rhum Barbancourt, in Port Au Prince, on the Isle of Haiti. Founded in 1862, by Dupré Barbancourt, the company has been passed down through generations. The French spelling for for this Caribbean elixir may be off by one letter, However, the differences between Rhum and Rum are much more complex than this small grammatical twist.
The rum making traditions of the French West Indies, differ greatly from the rum traditions of the other colonized Caribbean countries. A key difference in ‘Rhum Agricole’ production is that it is distilled only once, to 70% ABV, from sugar cane juice as opposed to fermented molasses. Then it is brought down to bottling proof. Barbancourt is twice distilled in Copper Pot Stills. The resultant spirit is aged for eight years in Limousin white oak barrels. Expect notes of oak vanilla and citrus.

Rum history allegedly started in the Carribiens in the 17th century when they started to ferment and distill molasses, a byproduct of sugar production. Most of the Rum is aged in oak or ex-wine casks, giving its color and flavor.
We distinguish between 4 different Rum categories, where white or unaged rum is mainly used in cocktails, while dark, spiced, and añejo (aged) rum are mostly enjoyed neat.
