Saint James Agricole VSOP Rhum
About Saint James Agricole VSOP RhumSaint James Agricole VSOP Rhum is crafted in Saint Marie, Martinique, adhering to the strict AOC (appellation d'origine contrôlée ― controlled designation of origin) guidelines. This means that only locally-produced sugarcane from one of the 23 municipalities of Martinique is used. After the cane juice is fermented, it is distilled using a Creole column still. The VSOP is Saint James' flagship expression, and ― according to Master Blender Marc Sassier ― their quintessential Rhum. Powerful and charming, it has spent at least 4 years in ex-bourbon and new American oak casks, before being bottled at 86 proof.

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.
